Conference poster (ADI, 2020) Stigma related to dementia in India: Current status and challenges

This poster, presented at the ADI conference 2020, highlights findings from a study of attitudes to dementia and associated stigma in India. The findings show that there is poor awareness of dementia, socio cultural aspects contributing towards perceptions leading to stigma and barriers in access to dementia care in India. It also calls for need to promote dementia awareness campaigns to general public in order to help address stigma and discrimination towards dementia in India.
