World Alzheimer's Month is observed in September and sponsored by Alzheimer's Disease International. This international campaign raises awareness and challenges the stigma that surrounds dementia.
World Alzheimer's Month was launched in 2012.
World Alzheimer's Day is observed on September 21 each year. September 2018 will mark the 7th global World Alzheimer's Month, and will utilise the theme of Remember Me to highlight the importance of early detection and diagnosis of dementia. Two out of every three people globally beliee there is little or no understanding of dementia in their country.
World Alzheimer's Month is growing, but the stigmatization and misinformation that surrounds dementia remains a global problem that requires global action.
