Two articles were produced: 1- Validation of a screening tool to assess for dementia in a Senegalese elderly population: "The Test of Senegal". The "Test of Senegal" identified dementia at the best cut-off point of 28/29 with the following criteria: sensitivity (93.1%), specificity (89.6%), positive predictive value (93.1%), and negative predictive value (92.8%). It was reliable with a kappa coefficient of 0.82 and stable. Age and education had no confounding effect. It was correlated with other tools. 2- Cognitive impairment in a Senegalese elderly population: prevalence and risk factors The prevalence of cognitive impairment was 10.8%. Age, few contacts with relatives and friends, heart disease, stroke, epilepsy, head trauma and family history of dementia were associated with cognitive impairment while being member of religious association and arthritis were associated with good cognitive function.
