World Dementia Council

The World Dementia Council was established by the G8 at the London summit. Its role is to challenge and support the international decision makers to keep up momentum on dementia and to bring together international stakeholders to galvanize and amplify efforts. Through international advocacy, international leadership and building global networks the Council helps keep dementia on the international agenda.

  • Summit 2018

    In December 2018, global leaders and the international dementia community came together once again in London for the World Dementia Council's five-year progress summit. 


  • Council meetings

    The council has 24 members drawn from around the world as well as associate members representing governments and international organisations such as the OECD and WHO. The Council meets twice a year. Since it was established the council has met twelve times to review the international dementia agenda and progress towards the 2025 ambitions.
