Only 10% of Alzheimer cases are treated in FYROM

Ministry of Health in FYROM is holding an awareness campaign on Alzheimer, on the occasion of the World Day of Alxheimer.

The minister of Health, Arben Taravari said that the country has around 20 thousand people suffering from this disease, while very few of them are being treated.

“We only treat 2 to 3 thousand patients a year and this is a very small number. If we look at other countries such as Serbia or Croatia, we will see that the number of people that they treat is greater, or 30-40%. We must achieve similar levels too”, minister of Health, Arben Taravari said. /balkaneu.com/
