Global Solutions

Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI) believes that the key to winning the fight against dementia lies in a unique combination of Global Solutions and local knowledge. As such, it works locally, by empowering Alzheimer associations to promote and offer care and support for people with dementia and their carers, while working globally to focus attention on dementia. Our board is composed of people from around the world, and our staff team is based in London.

ADI is the international federation of Alzheimer associations around the world, in official relations with the World Health Organization. Each member is the Alzheimer association in their country who support people with dementia and their families. ADI's vision is an improved quality of life for people with dementia and their families throughout the world.

ADI runs the Alzheimer University, a series of practical workshops aimed at helping the staff and volunteers of Alzheimer associations build and strengthen their organisations.

ADI holds an annual international conference which is the longest-running international conference on dementia. The conference is a unique multi-disciplinary event which unites people with an interest in dementia from around the world.

World Alzheimer's Month, celebrated each September with World Alzheimer's Day on September 21, is an opportunity to raise global awareness about dementia and its impact on families and the important work of our members throughout the world.
