Member activities throughout World Alzheimer’s Month 2021
Throughout September 2021, over 110 countries took part in World Alzheimer’s Month, in the form of national campaigns, lighting of public monuments, memory walks and more.
The 2021 campaign theme, ‘Know Dementia, Know Alzheimer’s’, centred around the importance of a timely diagnosis, as well as breaking down the stigma that continues to persist around dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. As a part of the campaign, ADI also highlighted the importance of knowing the warning signs of dementia, which members widely distributed in their own respective languages.
With September 2021 marking 10 years since the first World Alzheimer’s Month, the 2021 campaign was the most successful yet. Without the hard work, determination and innovative thinking of our member associations, this would not have been possible.
