Public Call for Action

By 2025, 9.1 million people will be living with dementia in Europe. By 2050, this number is estimated to reach 14.3 million. According to World Health Organization’s (WHO) it is the third leading cause of mortality in Europe and the seventh globally. Furthermore, the WHO estimates that the cost of dementia in the European region in 2019 was EUR 392 billion.

As such, Alzheimer Europe and its member organisations are asking for your support to call for European Union leaders to make dementia a priority in the forthcoming term 2024-2029, implementing the actions of the Helsinki Manifesto.
