STRiDE: Strengthening Responses to Dementia in Developing Countries

The STRiDE (Strengthening Responses to Dementia in Developing Countries) project, aims to build research capacity and provide much-needed evidence on dementia care. is examining current practice, both at a national level and for individual families, both to help people living with dementia to live well, and to ensure that family and other carers do not face excessive costs that could impoverish them or compromise their own health.

The STRiDE project will support the development of evidence-informed national plans for dementia care in seven middle-income countries seeing rapid increases in dementia prevalence: Brazil, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kenya, Mexico and South Africa.  The inter-sectoral, multi-institution and interdisciplinary project brings together researchers in these countries and in the UK with international non-government organisations, Alzheimer’s Disease International, Dementia Alliance International, and policy partners in these seven countries.
