International Indigenous Dementia Research Network (IIDRN)

The International Indigenous Dementia Research Network (IIDRN) seeks to highlight the profiles of researchers, students, Indigenous community members, and policy makers from around the world who share a commitment to research concerning Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and healthy aging in Indigenous peoples. Researchers in the network support and inspire each other through an online discussion platform, sharing results and findings, collaborating, and occasional meetings.

Our ultimate goal is to enhance knowledge of how Indigenous peoples understand and experience dementia and the impact of dementia on Indigenous peoples and communities. In this way we hope to improve care and advocate for greater resources for culturally relevant care to assist Indigenous caregivers, communities and health care providers.
