New Delhi: One person in every 50 households in India suffers from Alzheimer`s disease or other related forms of dementia, according to a report by Alzheimer`s Disease International (ADI) released Tuesday. "India has nearly 3.7 million people suffering with the degenerative illness and the number is expected to double by the year 2030," said K.Jacob Ray, chairman of Alzheimer`s and Related Disorders Society of India (ARDSI).
"The focus needs to be on awareness, supporting the victim and initiating research on the illness. Social approach towards the treatment is also required, apart from medical help," ADI`s executive director Mark Wortmann said. IANS
