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.
The World Dementia Council has an Executive Team led by Lenny Shallcross the Executive Director
Dementia is the biggest health challenge facing the international community. No one country and no one individual can alone meet this challenge. Only through greater international collaboration will we together defeat dementia. The World Dementia Council works to keep dementia on the international agenda.
WDC provides global leadership through developing evidence of best practice and global resources we will enable others to deliver evidence based change.
WDC achieves change through establishing global collaborative networks of individuals and organisations in key priority areas to agree global goals and raise the profile of tackling dementia internationally.
