About our world
David Cameron described dementia this year as “one of the greatest challenges of our time”. Worldwide there are more than 36 million people living with dementia, 820,000 of which live in the UK alone. In 2010, dealing with dementia cost the world £380 billion. That’s 1% of global GDP. In the UK, annual expenditure on dementia is £23 billion, a figure projected to increase to £50 billion by 2040. This is a sum of immense proportions that brings with it novel opportunities for socially conscious enterprise.
