September is World Alzheimer's Month

World Alzheimer's Month is the international campaign by Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI) every September to raise awareness and challenge the stigma that surrounds dementia. World Alzheimer's Month was launched in 2012. World Alzheimer's Day is on 21 September each year. 

2 out of every 3 people globally believe there is little or no understanding of dementia in their countries. The impact of World Alzheimer's Month is growing, but the stigmatisation and misinformation that surrounds dementia remains a global problem that requires global action.

September 2017 marks the 6th global World Alzheimer's Month, and will utilise the theme of 'Remember me' to highlight the importance of early detection and diagnosis of dementia.

Support the campaign

ADI relies on donations in order to carry out its work of strengthening Alzheimer associations worldwide and raising awareness about the global impact of dementia. Please help us to grow the campaign by donating generously.
