Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Dementia is becoming one of the biggest social health care challenges with the aging of the population worldwide. Because an effective curative care of dementia is not established, dementia prevention strategies or care strategies for dementia patients in circumstances surrounding aging societies are getting increasing attention. However, there is a lack of information about these issues.

This Special Issue will feature articles regarding epidemiological studies or the review of strategies for dementia.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.
