The MARIO Horizon 2020 European project is proudly supporting the Glasgow Declaration which was launched by Alzheimer Europe on 20 October 2014. On the same day it was adopted unanimously by delegates from 26 AE member organisations.

The Glasgow Declaration calls for the creation of a European Dementia Strategy and national strategies in every country in Europe. The signatories also call upon world leaders to recognise dementia as a public health priority and to develop a global action plan on dementia.

As signatories, we commit ourselves fully to promoting the rights, dignity and autonomy of people living with dementia. These rights are universal, and guaranteed in the European Convention of Human Rights, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenants on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and Civil and Political Rights, and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

We affirm that every person living with dementia has:
• The right to a timely diagnosis;
• The right to access quality post diagnostic support;
• The right to person centred, coordinated, quality care throughout their illness;
• The right to equitable access to treatments and therapeutic interventions;
• The right to be respected as an individual in their community.
