 QBRI's  awareness campaign at the Qatar Mall on September 21 - Alzheimer's Day was a success, The event offered the public an opportunity to learn more about Alzheimer’s Disease through a range of educational and fun-filled activities.

Alzheimer's Disease (AD)  is the most common cause of dementia. AD kills more than breast cancer and prostrate cancer combined. There are 50 million people in the world living with dementia in 2018. The stigmatization and misinformation that surrounds dementia remains a global problem requiring global action.
