Global Dementia Observatory (GDO)

The Global Dementia Observatory (GDO) is a data and knowledge exchange platform that offers easy access to key dementia data from Member States across the following three domains: policies, service delivery, and information and research. The GDO supports countries in measuring progress on dementia actions outlined in the Global Dementia Action Plan on the Public Health Response to Dementia and assists them in strengthening policies, service planning and health and social care systems for dementia.

National, regional and global data are supplemented by the latest epidemiological estimates and statistics from other sources, such as WHO's Global Health Observatory.
