Public Health England (PHE) have released a systematic review which examines variations in the incidence and prevalence of dementia between groups defined by (“protected”) characteristics; including socio-economic status, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, gender, sexual orientation and disability. It investigates two main questions:

  2. Among people living with dementia, do outcomes vary according to these characteristics?
