This report from the Milken Institute Alliance to Improve Dementia Care centers around two overarching themes: (1) strengthening the infrastructure among health care, long-term, and community-based organizations to achieve greater health equity for people living with dementia and their caregivers and (2) expanding dementia-friendly networks and workplaces in racially and ethnically diverse communities. This report presents actionable recommendations to build health equity by reducing disparities in dementia prevention, detection, diagnosis, and care. The report is available as a free PDF download.
