World Alzheimer’s Day

World Alzheimer’s Day is observed on September 21 to create global awareness about the disease, symptom and risk factors. In some countries, it is observed throughout the month of September. The theme for World Alzheimer’s Month in 2021 is “Know dementia, know Alzheimer’s”.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia that destroys memory and other brain functions of a person. It was diagnosed for the first time in 1901 by German psychiatrist Alois Alzheimer. Alzheimer Disease International, which was established in 1984, announced the first-ever World Alzheimer’s Day in 1994 to mark the 10th anniversary of their formation.
