The cost of dementia
Alzheimer's Research UK has commissioned the Health Economics Research Centre at the University of Oxford to produce a report on the economic cost of dementia to the UK, and the country's investment in research to find new treatments, preventions and cures.
The Oxford team's findings are astonishing. They show dementia to be the greatest medical challenge of our time.

"The UK's dementia crisis is worse than we feared. This report shows that dementia is the greatest medical challenge of the 21st century."
