European Parliament Elections 2019

Around 9.1 million people in Europe have dementia and these numbers are expected to increase to 14 million people by 2040, due to the ageing of European societies.

With no disease-modifying treatment currently available and varied access to diagnosis, treatment and high quality care across Member States, EU institutions must show leadership by making dementia a priority in the fields of health, research and innovation, and social affairs.

Alzheimer Europe and its members therefore call upon candidates in the 2019 European elections to join this campaign to make dementia a European priority.
