Advancing Care for Women with Alzheimer’s Disease


Published 6/29/23

A Call to Action from the Society for Women’s Health Research

Despite the broad investment in Alzheimer’s disease research and care, there remain significant gaps in our understanding and approach to addressing disease disparities for women. The Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR) has identified priority areas to eliminate gaps in Alzheimer’s disease concerning delays in diagnoses for women, inclusion of women in clinical trials, disproportionate burden of caregiving, and policy solutions that hinder access and care for women living with Alzheimer’s disease.

This document was created based off the data and insights from the SWHR Women’s Health Dashboard, which offers a platform to explore the latest national and state data on diseases and health conditions that have significant impacts on women’s health across the lifespan – namely Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), depressive disorders, and ischemic heart disease (IHD).
