On 5 September 2007, following a call by Alzheimer Europe and its member organisations to make dementia a European public health priority, Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) met in Strasbourg to formally launch the European Alzheimers Alliance (EAA).
The multinational and cross-party Alliance brought together MEPs to support European citizens living with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia, as well as that of their informal or family carers.
The EAA continues its work as a non-exclusive, multinational and cross-party group, with two key objectives:
- Send out the political message that concerted action is needed in the field of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, as well as research and social policies.
- Promote actions to give dementia priority at European and national level.
In this section, you will find the MEPs who are part of the EAA, as well as past members of the Alliance.
