World Alzheimer’s Day takes place during World Alzheimer’s Month and is on 21 September every year.
In the build up to, and on the day of, many Alzheimer and dementia associations around the world host memory walks, fundraisers, awareness raising activities and campaigns to bring attention towards those in their community that are affected by Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia.
Since COVID-19, many associations, including Alzheimer’s Disease Internation (ADI) members, host events and activities virtually. These activities include webinars, remote memory walks and more.
Each World Alzheimer’s Day, ADI releases its annual World Alzheimer Report. Like this year’s campaign theme, the 2022 report will centre around post-diagnosis.
