Final Event and Network Launch

Dementia affects more people in low- and middle-income countries than it does in high-income countries, yet few countries are prepared for the challenges of the growing number of people living with dementia.

The STRiDE Project was a 54-month study which aimed to examine current dementia practice in seven developing countries, both at a national level and for individual families, to help people living with dementia to live well and to ensure that family and other carers do not face excessive costs that could impoverish them or compromise their own health. The STRiDE Project was a partnership between researchers and NGOs in Brazil, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kenya, Mexico, South Africa and the UK.

This event brings together research findings across the STRiDE Project covering a range of themes: the prevalence, costs, and impact of dementia; the economic, social and health costs of providing unpaid care; increasing dementia awareness and reducing stigma; and models of care.

The event will also mark the launch of the STRiDE Network, which aims to build on the legacy of the STRiDE Project and aims to extend collaboration to support research capacity globally.
