On this occasion the theme addressed the issue of “confinement and self-improvement”, Alzheimer’s or other dementia, seen as pathologies that isolate those who suffer from them and their social and family relationships, how the ability to overcome adversity is fundamental to continue persisting in life, mainly in the current social context of health crisis.

From the organizing team of the Afaga Alzheimer contest we are very grateful and surprised by the high participation from various stories from South America, Europe and Africa, and by the high capacity to transmit emotions and the clarity in the message presented by the different writers in the more than 90 works received.
