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. World Alzheimer's Month was launched in 2012. World Alzheimer's Day is on 21 September each year.

The impact of World Alzheimer's Month is growing, but the stigmatisation and misinformation that surrounds dementia remains a global problem. 2 out of 3 people globally believe there is little or no understanding of dementia in their countries, and people living with dementia and their carers are often excluded from everyday activities.

September 2016 marked the fifth global World Alzheimer’s Month™ with the theme 'Remember Me'. Events were held by Alzheimer's asscoations and others in over 70 countries worldwide with the support of Alzheimer's Disease International.
