The China Alzheimer Report 2022
China has experienced a rapid ageing of its population, leading to a surge in neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer's disease (AD) and related dementias (ADRD). AD's incidence, morbidity, and mortality rates have risen, making it the fifth leading cause of death in China, resulting in substantial financial burdens on individuals, families, and society. The 'Healthy China Action' plan (2019–2030) aims to shift focus from disease treatment to health maintenance, particularly for those with ADRD. This report describes epidemiological trends, assesses the economic impact, reviews clinical diagnosis and treatment, and delineates public health resources. This special report outlines the need for preventive measures, healthcare policy development, and international collaboration.
