Dementia Forum X
– An international initiative focusing on the global challenges of dementia.
Dementia is one of the toughest challenges of today, with over 47 million people affected worldwide. This number is expected to double by 2030 and reach beyond 131 million people by 2050. Dementia does not only affect the patients, their families and caregivers, both emotionally and financially, it also has a direct effect on the world economy with a yearly average cost of 818 billion dollars, a figure that increases every day.
Dementia Forum X strives for a broader collaboration between executives from all parts of the global community.

Dementia Forum X was organized for the first time in conjunction with the 20th anniversary of Stiftelsen Silviahemmet 2015 and supported by Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden. The initiative was organized in collaboration with The Karolinska Institute and Forte. Dementia Forum X was a day of reflection and discussions between a hundred of the worlds leading business executives, policy-makers and other stakeholders. The participants were selected from five identified key sectors; finance, business, society, care and research. By teaming up with the leading expertise from different parts of the global society, Dementia Forum X aimed at creating a joint understanding of the global effects of dementia. Furthermore, Dementia Forum X will be an accelerator for creativity, new initiatives and sustainable actions towards a better tomorrow.
Dementia Forum X also enabled interaction and communication with a broader audience through our corresponding global digital platform dementiaforum.org.
