World Alzheimer's Month is a time to recognise the impact of dementia but also to act to support those affected globally. A coordinated global voice on dementia ensures that this action is taken to advance awareness, care and science all year round.
Organisations and individuals everywhere can get involved by supporting the campaign theme and messages during September, and remembering to discuss dementia with family, friends and colleagues. You can also follow the campaign on social media, by visiting the website of the Alzheimer association in your country or by contacting us.
Campaign materials will be available soon. Materials include a campaign poster, bulletin and unique toolkits for corporate, media and civil society supporters in English and Spanish.
You can follow the work of ADI, including development of the campaign for 2018, by subscribing to our regular updates.
There are several ways you can participate in World Alzheimer's Month. You could organise your own event or visit our Events page to join an activity organised by your national Alzheimer association. You can also spread the word on social media using the hashtag #worldalzmonth
World Alzheimer's Month unites opinion leaders, people with dementia, caregivers and family, medical professionals, researchers and the media from all around the world.
World Alzheimer's Month provides an opportunity for Alzheimer associations around the world to gain recognition and credibility for the work they do, placing themselves in a stronger position to influence opinion leaders and governments.
Each year, more and more countries are participating in World Alzheimer's Month events and in many areas, dementia awareness is growing.
World Alzheimer's Month is also an excellent opportunity to have fun.
