44 measures in order to fight Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders

Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders progress inexorably as people age : over 85 years old, 1 woman out of 4 and 1 man out of 5 suffer from them. Faced with this major scientifical, medical and social challenge, the President of the French Republic launched on 1rst february 2008 the "plan Alzheimer 2008-2012". Centered on the person with the disease and his or her family helpers, the plan aims at unprecedently developping research, facilitating a timely diagnosis and taking a better care of the person and his or her helpers.
