World Alzheimer’s Month

September is World Alzheimer's Month

World Alzheimer's Month is the international campaign every September to raise awareness and challenge the stigma that surrounds dementia. September 2018 will mark the 7th World Alzheimer's Month. The campaign 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.

Get involved!

Organisations and individuals everywhere can get involved by supporting awareness, contacting the Alzheimer association in their country or requesting more information at info@alz.co.uk

Campaign materials will be available soon.
