Adelina Comas-Herrera is co-lead of the Strengthening Responses to Dementia in Developing Countries (STRiDE) project, a multi-national research project funded by the Research Councils UK’s Global Challenges Research Fund involving Brazil, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kenya, Mexico, and South Africa. The project aims to build capacity to generate research to support the development of policy responses to dementia.

Her main research interests are economic aspects of care, treatment and support of people with dementia, and long-term care financing, in the UK and globally. She has extensive experience on developing simulation models of the future resources required to address long-term care needs and needs arising from dementia.
