Diagnosis, Care & Research in Low & Middle Income Countries

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The ISTAART Diversity and Disparities Professional Interest Area (PIA) focuses on identifying potential differences in risk reduction strategies, diagnosis, and treatment effectiveness in individuals of diverse backgrounds. A major emphasis is placed on underlying cultural and cognitive differences and brain mechanisms. The PIA also explores culturally-responsible strategies for dementia risk reduction in these populations.

Members of the PIA Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMIC) Workgroup are undertaking a survey  to identify the gaps / barriers in dementia care, support, and research in LMICs to develop suitable strategies and interventions to improve dementia care in these countries. The survey has 38 questions, and they estimate the survey will take 10-15 minutes to complete.
