touchNEUROLOGY is proud to announce a new partnership with Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI), the global voice on dementia and the umbrella organisation of Alzheimer associations around the world.
50 million people are currently living with dementia, with someone developing dementia every 3 seconds. Figures are forecast to increase to 152 million by 2050, with the majority of this increase in low- and middle-income countries.
ADI was formed at a meeting in Washington in 1984 and initially comprised of four members: Alzheimer associations in Australia, Canada and the UK and the US. Alzheimer and dementia associations are non-profit organisations which support people with dementia and their families. In the 35 years since this seminal meeting, ADI has grown from four founding members to 100 member associations and federations globally.
ADI’s mission is to strengthen and support Alzheimer associations, to raise awareness about dementia worldwide, to make dementia a global health priority, to empower people with dementia and their care partners, and to increase investment in dementia research. ADI works to raise global awareness about dementia including via the annual World Alzheimer’s Month campaign in September, global conference and regional meetings.
