Celebrities Vie For 'Who Wears Purple Best?' Title to Raise Awareness of New Global Prevalence On World Alzheimer's Day
Date:9/20/2009

With 78 million American baby boomers reaching the age of greatest risk, it is clear that the crisis of dementia and Alzheimer's cannot be ignored. Left unchecked, dementia and Alzheimer's will impose enormous burdens on individuals, families, health care infrastructures and the worldwide economy.

According to the 2009 World Alzheimer's Report, newly released today from Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI), a London-based nonprofit, international federation of 71 national Alzheimer organizations including the Alzheimer's Association, the number of people with Alzheimer's or another dementia, currently 35 million, is expected to nearly double every 20 years, to 65.7 million in 2030 and 115.4 million in 2050.

"Today on World Alzheimer's Day, with 35 million people worldwide and as many as 5.3 Americans living with Alzheimer's disease, we should commit to focusing on Alzheimer's throughout the year," said David Hyde Pierce, actor and Honorary Alzheimer Association National Board Member. "Our government should commit to making this a health care priority, and the next step is to pass the Alzheimer's Breakthrough Act."

Worldwide, the economic cost of dementia has been estimated as $315 billion annually. The total annual costs per person with dementia have been estimated as $1,521 in a low income country, rising to $4,588 in middle income countries, and $17,964 in high income countries. (Anders Wimo, et al. "An Estimate of the Total Worldwide Societal Costs of Dementia in 2005." Alzheimer's & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association. Volume 3, Issue 2, April 2007.)

"The number of people affected by Alzheimer's is growing at a rapid rate, and the increasing personal costs will have significant impact on the world's economies and health care systems. We must make the fight against Alzheimer's a priority here in the United States and worldwide," said Harry J
