About our work

While there is already much work going on globally to tackle dementia, WDC is uniquely placed to rise to the challenges the disease presents. We are a group of senior leaders from different parts of the world, from a wide range of constituencies and with a broad range of skills.
  • Our vision and mission

    The World Dementia Council (WDC) helps create a global environment in which societies, governments, industry, researchers and health and care systems all work together to transform the prospects for people affected by dementia in all its forms, so that the disease no longer negatively impacts on lives in the way it does today.
