World Alzheimer’s Day 2022

An estimated 50 million people around the world currently live with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias, dementia being a collective term for progressive syndromes that affect various expressions of cognitive function, such as memory and emotional expression. Alzheimer’s disease accounts for the majority of cases (50 to 70%, varying by country, based on Alzheimer’s Disease International and World Health Organization figures). For those directly affected and their loved ones, dementia can be a frightening experience, particularly as it is so poorly understood. However there remains little or no understanding of dementia in many, and the stigmatization and misinformation that surrounds dementia remains a global issue.

For 2022 World Alzheimer’s Day the theme Know Dementia, Know Alzheimer’s, organized annually by Alzheimer’s Disease International, focuses on diagnosis, the warning signs of dementia, with a special focus on post-diagnosis support. The aim of this international campaign is to highlight the importance of support for people living with dementia and families following a diagnosis.
