Here’s a bit more about the World Dementia Council (WDC)

The World Dementia Council helps change the lives of people with dementia by securing change internationally working with international governmental and non-governmental organizations. Through the collaborative strength of governments, industry, researchers and health and social care systems all working together we can 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.

The World Dementia Council was established by the G8 (now G7) at the London Dementia Summit in 2013. The council has 24 members drawn from around the globe. At the London summit the G8 made historic commitments to improve the lives of people affected by dementia today and to speed up the development of disease modifying drugs so that the first treatment is available by 2025. The role of the World Dementia Council is to challenge and support international governmental organization to realize and accede these ambitions. Through monitoring progress, identifying what further international action is needed and building, expanding and nurturing global networks the World Dementia Council helps galvanize global efforts to beat dementia.
