Dementia Pledge 2024

Alzheimer Europe and its members are calling upon candidates in the 2024 European Parliament elections to join this campaign to make dementia a European priority, asking them to sign up to the European Dementia Pledge. Candidates who sign the Dementia Pledge, upon election, commit to joining the European Alzheimer's Alliance and to prioritising dementia during their work as parliamentarians.

We are therefore calling for candidates to sign the following Dementia Pledge 2024.

Members of the European Parliament have the opportunity to play a key role in prioritising dementia in a number of ways, including:

  • Asking questions of (prospective) Commissioners with responsibility for policy areas such Health, Research and Social Affairs, to ensure dementia is prioritised
  • Using their position as members of European Parliament committees or as Rapporteurs in order to improve legislation which will affect people with dementia and their carers
  • Raising awareness through their communications activities to colleagues and stakeholders to ensure dementia is understood and addressed at a European level.

Candidates who wish to sign the pledge can do so by announcing their support on social media using the hashtag #DementiaPledge2024, by signing and returning the Dementia Pledge PDF or by emailing us at info@alzheimer-europe.org

The Dementia Pledge PDF can be downloaded below.
