About Us

Learn more about Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI), including who we are and what we aim to do.

Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) is the international federation of Alzheimer and dementia associations around the world; in official relations with the World Health Organization (WHO).

Our vision is risk reduction, timely diagnosis, care and inclusion today, and cure tomorrow.

We believe that tackling dementia requires efforts at global, regional and local levels. We work by empowering Alzheimer and dementia associations to advocate for dementia as a national priority, to raise awareness and to offer care and support for people with dementia and their care partners. Globally, we strive to focus attention on dementia, maintain it as a global health priority, campaign for better policy from governments and encourage investment and innovation in dementia research.

ADI was established in 1984 by an initiative of the Alzheimer associations in the USA, UK, Australia and Canada. We have over 100 members, generally one in each country. Each member is a not-for-profit organisation that focuses on supporting people living with dementia, their carers and families.

ADI is a not-for-profit organisation registered in the USA. Our main office is in London, UK, with an Asia Pacific regional office located in Jakarta, Indonesia and an Americas regional office located in Buenos Aires, Argentina. We have a growing team, and an Elected Board made up of volunteers from around the world.
