Alzheimer’s disease is a major global healthcare challenge. The number of people living with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia is currently estimated at over 55 million worldwide, and this number is expected to reach 78 million by 2030. The prevalence of dementia is estimated at around 10 million across all European countries, and is expected to almost double by 2050. In France, 2.2 million people may be affected by the disease by 2050.
