Reuters (9/2, Nebehay) reports, “More than 55 million people worldwide are living with dementia, a neurological disorder that robs them of their memory and costs the world $1.3 trillion a year, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Thursday” in a report. Aging populations mean “the number of sufferers is projected to rise to 78 million by 2030 and 139 million by 2050.” The Hill (9/2, Mastrangelo) reports, “World health officials said they are on pace to fall short of projected goals agreed upon in 2015 to combat dementia,” while “a majority of patients are in low- or middle-income countries.” (SOURCE: APA Headlines)
