World Alzheimer's Month 2022

Research has the power to transform the lives of everyone affected by dementia – but it will take all of us to make breakthroughs possible.

Anyone who has witnessed the devastation of dementia understands the urgent need for life-changing treatments.

Unless we act now, one in three people born today will develop dementia in their lifetime.

But dementia research is making incredible progress.

And this World Alzheimer’s Month, we need your help to get new treatments over the finish line.

No action is too small to make breakthroughs possible!
