New members of the European Alzheimer’s Alliance are announced

Tuesday 28 May 2019

Following the European Parliament elections between 23 and 26 May, and the #DementiaPledge2019 campaign, Alzheimer Europe is pleased to announce the newly-formed European Alzheimer’s Alliance (EAA) for 2019-2024.

Thanks to the hard work of Alzheimer Europe’s members and their efforts campaigning in the run-up to the elections, the EAA will start its new term with 89 members, from 26 countries.

Alzheimer Europe will be writing to MEPs in the new EAA, in the coming weeks, thanking newly-elected pledgees for their support in making dementia a European priority, as well writing to thank EAA members for the previous 2014-2019 term that were re-elected. In these letters, EAA members will be asked to use their positions to ensure dementia is a European priority, through a series of specific asks.

Alzheimer Europe is delighted to announce that Sirpa Pietikäinen, MEP (Finland) has agreed to be the new Chairperson of the EAA, going forward. Thanks, also, to former MEP Françoise Grossetête, who was the first Chairperson of the EAA, from its begininnings in 2007, until May 2019, when she decided not to stand for re/elction as an MEP. Alzheimer Europe formally reconvene the EAA, including a new Chair and Vice Chairs.

We will update our website with the new EAA members, in due course.
