About the conference

September 2017 will mark the sixth global World Alzheimer’s Month, an international campaign to raise Dementia awareness and challenge the stigma associated with the disease. During this time, Alzheimer’s associations and other stakeholders around the world organise advocacy and information provision events. In line with this, Africa will host it’s 4th African Regional Conference of Alzheimer’s Disease International in Nairobi, Kenya. The conference will feature a range of both African and International experts and speakers engaging around the importance of Dementia awareness in Africa.

TOPICS: Some of the topics to be covered include ‘Demystifying Dementia’, ‘Epidemiology, Prevention & Risk Reduction’, ‘Emerging Elderly in Africa’ and ‘The Realities of Long-Term Care Provisions’, and will also include the presentation of an action plan from the World Health Organisation (WHO). Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) will also be launching the African report.

WHO: This conference will bring together clinicians and scientists, family and professional carers, people with dementia and staff and volunteers of Alzheimer associations. The conference allows the coming together of different cultures and provides opportunities to learn from one another and share important research to help make a difference to those affected by dementia.

THEME: The conference theme is “Let’s open up”. In Kenya and in Africa at large, there is still a lot of stigmatisation and lack of understanding of Dementia and specifically Alzheimer’s. That said, the time has come for us to take action and have bold conversations with a clear aim of addressing the issues surrounding stigmatisation, care and treatment.
