World Dementia Council

The World Dementia Council was established in 2013 by the G8 at the London summit. Its role is to challenge and support the international decision makers to keep up momentum on dementia, and to bring together international stakeholders to galvanize and amplify efforts. Through global advocacy, global leadership and building global networks, the WDC helps keep dementia on the international agenda.

  • Global advocacy

    No one country or individual alone can meet what is the biggest health challenge facing the international community. We work to keep dementia on the international agenda, because only through greater global collaboration will it be defeated.

  • Global leadership

    We provide global leadership through developing evidence of best practice. From hosting conferences to publishing reviews, our global resources help enable others to deliver evidence-based change.

  • Global networks

    We achieve change through building global collaborative networks of individuals and organisations in key priority areas. Together we agree to share goals and raise the profile of tackling dementia internationally.
