Words of Strength

Highly ambitious


To reduce the scale and impact of dementia, Sanjib believes we need to find an effective as well as cost-effective health policy to identify, treat, and manage people living with dementia as well as their caregivers.


Sanjib is estimating the cost-effectiveness of various pharmacological as well as non-pharmacological interventions targeting people living with dementia and their caregivers to help policymakers make informed decisions.


As an Atlantic Fellow, Sanjib has gained a deeper understanding of the impact of dementia from a patient's point of view.


The societal cost of dementia is substantial in Sweden. Saha’s interest is to provide evidence on the cost-effectiveness of different treatment/interventions to the policymakers to facilitate evidence-based decision-making.
