The Global Observatory for Ageing and Dementia Care, hosted at the Health Service and Population Research Department, King’s College London, was founded in 2013. Supported by Alzheimer’s Disease International, and King’s College London, the Observatory has a tripartite mission: 1 To build upon ADI’s 10/66 Dementia Research Group program of population-based and intervention research in low and middle income countries, maximising the impact that research findings from our data can have upon policy and practice. 2. To developing, evaluate, and promote primary care and community interventions for people with dementia. 3. To synthesise global evidence for policymakers and public, in particular, continuing and developing our role in the preparation of high impact evidence-based reports for Alzheimer’s Disease International (World Alzheimer Reports 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2013, and Nutrition and dementia), the World Health Organization (Dementia: a public health priority, 2012) and other relevant intergovernmental organisations. The World Alzheimer Report 2014 was independently researched and authored by Prof Martin Prince, Prof Emiliano Albanese, Dr Maëlenn Guerchet and Dr Matthew Prina on behalf of the Global Observatory for Ageing and Dementia Care, with contributions from others as listed. The evidence reported in Chapters 1-6, and the inferences drawn, are the responsibility of the authors alone. The key messages were developed by Alzheimer’s Disease International and the Global Observatory.
