Throughout the month Alzheimer's associations and other stakeholders organise advocacy and information events, as well as Memory Walks, media appearances and fundraising days. The impact of this campaign is growing, but the stigmatisation and misinformation that surrounds dementia remains a global issue.
The theme for this year’s World Alzheimer’s Month campaign is Remember Me.
We’re encouraging people all around the world to understand the importance of memory as a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease, not to forget about loved ones who are living with the disease or who may have passed away.
