Alzheimer Disease International

Alzheimer Disease International (ADI), was founded in 1984 to help to fight Alzheimer's disease that was first diagnosed back in 1906. In the present, ADI has grown as an international organization that also runs the Alzheimer University to help volunteers and staff of other Alzheimer Associations to develop the maximum capacity in their organization, and diminish the increasing population suffering from dementia, which is estimated to reach the toll of 80 million people worldwide by 2040.

The president of ADI is the Princess Yasmin Aga Khan, daughter of the actress Rita Hayworth, diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 1981.

ADI is based in London, UK.
