The government has been investing in training their workforce so they can recognize signs of cognitive impairment (informal source, 2019). In São José dos Campos (state of São Paulo) there is a dementia training for doctors, nurses, and dentists. This programme is based on discussions of dementia clinical cases together with a multidisciplinary team (informal source, 2019). As stated above, Brazil comprises 5,570 municipalities, thus other unknown strategies might exist. The Law Project 4364/2020 supports the health professionals training in dementia.
