September is World Alzheimer’s Month, an international campaign to raise dementia awareness and challenge stigma. Each year, Alzheimer associations from around the world unite to organise advocacy and information provision events, as well as Memory Walks and fundraising days. The impact of this campaign is growing, but the stigmatisation and misinformation that surrounds dementia remains a global issue. This September is our time for action, when the global dementia family unites to call for and demand change.
World Alzheimer’s Month is coordinated by Alzheimer’s DiseaseInternational (ADI), the umbrella organisation of Alzheimer associations around the world. Join the campaign!
