World Alzheimer’s Day is observed every year on September 21st. The day is dedicated to raising awareness about Alzheimer’s disease, a progressive brain disorder that affects memory, thinking, and behaviour.
The day was first launched in 1994 by Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI), a global organization that aims to improve the quality of life of people with dementia and their families. Since then, the day has been observed annually to highlight the impact of Alzheimer’s disease on individuals, families, and communities worldwide.
The theme for World Alzheimer’s Day changes every year, with a focus on promoting awareness, understanding, and action to support people living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers. Various events, conferences, and campaigns are organized on this day to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s research and support services.
World Alzheimer’s Day serves as a reminder to all of us that we need to support and care for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and work towards finding a cure for this debilitating condition.
