Dementia Today: Diverse Communities Collective Action

Alzheimers NZ Biennial Conference and 19th Asia Pacific Regional Conference of Alzheimer’s Disease International

Dementia is one of the greatest healthcare challenges of our time, in New Zealand and around the world. Already, 60,000 Kiwis are living with dementia. Due to an ageing population, this number is expected to almost triple by 2050, to 154,000.

Top flight speakers from New Zealand and overseas will share the latest research, evidence, learnings and insights, and discuss how we can address this challenge.

With real life case studies, and an emphasis on what works, this conference has practical relevance to the real world of people affected by dementia, policy makers, service providers, health and care professionals, researchers and NGOs.
