GABI WILLIAMS ALZHEIMER’S FOUNDATION (GWAF)WORLD ALZHEIMER'S MONTH

View

Families affected by dementia are facing an illness that’s often frightening and debilitating. They shouldn’t also have to deal with ignorance, thoughtlessness and cruelty from the people around them. Dementia is not a joke – and people affected by it deserve to be treated with understanding and respect.

World Alzheimer's Month is the international campaign by Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI) every September to raise awareness and challenge the stigma that surrounds dementia. World Alzheimer's Month was launched in 2012. World Alzheimer's Day is on 21 September each year. The impact of World Alzheimer's Month is growing, but the stigmatization and misinformation that surrounds dementia remains a global problem that requires global action. 2

The Gabi Williams Alzheimer’s Foundation is joining the global community in the fight against Alzheimer’s through awareness, training and education. In addition to our Annual Lecture that holds on the 11th of September, GWAF is devoted to mass awareness campaign across social media, radio station and outdoor facilities. The GWAF 2020 Alzheimer’s awareness month campaign is supported by corporate partners in the media and outdoor publicity industry. 1 www.alzheimers.org.uk 2 www.worldalzmonth.org
