Latin American and Caribbean countries (LACs) constitute a region of incredible exquisiteness, heterogeneity and cultural crossbreeding. It is also a region which faces vast tensions for human development. Neurodegenerative diseases in this region are not an exception. LACs possess some of the world’s largest genetic population of multiple dementia subtypes.
