Health researchers say there are now nearly 47 million people living with dementia globally, up from 35 million in 2009. They warned that without a medical breakthrough, numbers will likely double every 20 years.

Nearly 47 Million People Now Have Dementia

In a report issued on Tuesday, researchers from Alzheimer’s Disease International say about 58 percent of all people with dementia live in developing countries and that by 2050, nearly half of all those with the disease will live in Asia. Numbers are expected to rise with aging populations and as more cases are identified.

There are 7.7 million new cases of dementia every year in the world, according to the World Health Organization.

Experts estimate the cost of treating dementia could jump to $1 trillion in just three years and called for governments to adopt legislation to ensure better treatment for people with the disease. There is no known cure for dementia.

People with dementia have at least one of two brain functioning problems: problems with memory, judgment, or language, or problems with doing daily activities (like getting lost while driving or paying bills), according to the Mayo Clinic. Memory loss — while certainly a characteristic of dementia — does not automatically mean a person has the syndrome.

People with dementia are not the only ones affected by the condition — caregivers also experience stress from it and require their own support.
