Forgotten in a Crisis Addressing Dementia in Humanitarian Response

What this report has shown is that there are tools out there, such as the WHO’s mhGAP Intervention Guide and Training Manual and the Washington Group Extended Set of Questions, but these are not being used enough – if at all. It has also highlighted the lack of standardisation and a unified approach to supporting people with dementia in crises. Humanitarian actors are not deliberately overlooking the needs of people living with dementia, but they do need support to understand what those needs are. This report aims to provide or enhance that understanding.
