The Federation Alzheimer Galicia and the association Afaga Alzheimer launches its campaign for World Alzheimer’s Day on September 1, which is commemorated on the 21st. The motto chosen this year by the federation and thirteen Galician associations for this date is ‘She will not remember, and you?’. This motto stems from the need for a greater social awareness of the disease, which affects around 100,000 people in Galicia, and which involves all areas of society.
In this year 2018, through this campaign, the federation wants to make more visible two aspects that both public administrations and society in general should help recognize:
- Claim the necessary awareness to ensure a proper comprehensive approach to Alzheimer’s.
- A greater commitment to science as the only resource to advance towards the eradication of the disease, as well as its consequences.
In addition, in this 20th Anniversary of FAGAL, the federation and the associations once again emphasize the importance of the implementation in Galicia of a Transversal Strategy of Attention to Dementia , which involves all fields of the Administration and that complements the National Alzheimer’s Plan, which will be published soon.
