Alzheimer's disease

Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia, accounting for 60% to 80% of cases according to the World Health Organization (WHO). It involves a deterioration of memory, intellect, behavior and ability to perform daily living activities. This disease has an impact, not only on those who suffer from it, but also families and caregivers who experience great physical, emotional and economic stress.

It is currently estimated that more than 35 million people worldwide suffer from Alzheimer's, a figure that continues to grow. The WHO estimates that by 2030 the number of detected cases more than double.
