Background: 1·8 billion people of diverse ethnicities and cultures live in the Western Pacific Region. The increasing longevity of populations in this region is a major contributor to the exponential increase in Parkinson’s disease prevalence worldwide. Differences exist between Parkinson’s disease in the Western Pacific Region and in Europe and North America that might provide important insights into our understanding of the disease and approaches to management.
