Aboriginal Australians in cities have dementia rates as high as those in rural areas

Studies have shown that Aboriginal Australians living in remote areas of the country are disproportionately affected by dementia, with rates approximately double those of non-Indigenous people. A new study shows that Aboriginal Australians living in urban areas also have similar high rates of dementia. The study is published in the February 9, 2022, online issue of Neurology. The study looked at Aboriginal Australians and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
