Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) is proud that its international conference is the longest running and one of the largest international conferences on dementia, attracting over 1,000 delegates from over 100 countries. Featuring a range of international keynote speakers and a high standard of scientific and non-scientific content, the conference programme enables participants to learn about the latest advances in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, care and management of dementia. This unique, multi-disciplinary event brings together all those with an interest, including researchers, scientists, clinicians, allied healthcare professionals, people living with dementia, family members, care professionals, and staff and volunteers of Alzheimer associations. In 2018, the 33rd International Conference of ADI shall be held in Chicago, United States following the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference.
ADI is the international federation of Alzheimer associations around the world, in official relations with the World Health Organization (WHO) and in consultative status with the United Nations (UN). ADI currently has 90 members, each member being the Alzheimer association in their country who support people living with dementia and their families. ADI believes that the key to winning the fight against dementia lies in a unique combination of global solutions and local knowledge. As such, it works locally, by empowering Alzheimer associations to promote and offer care and support for people living with dementia and their carers, whilst working globally to focus attention on dementia. There are over 46 million people estimated to be living with dementia around the world and this number is set to reach 131.5 million in 2050. ADI’s vision is prevention, care and inclusion today, and cure tomorrow. Visit our website to find out more.
