Coordinator of the Latin American and Caribbean Consortium on Dementia (LAC-CD).

Prize: Appointment

Description

Latin American and Caribbean countries (LACs) constitute a region of incredible exquisiteness, heterogeneity and cultural crossbreeding. It is also a region which faces vast tensions for human development. Neurodegenerative diseases in this region are not an exception. LACs possess some of the world’s largest genetic population of multiple dementia subtypes. Unsuitable diagnostic procedures, alongside with limited training, low awareness, lack of basic support, stigmas, language barriers, and low socioeconomic levels trigger huge dementia inequalities.
