Alzheimerfonden is a Swedish Alzheimer’s Foundation which supports all types of research on Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia diseases. Applications for grants are assessed according to scientific quality. The goal of the Council’s work is to get maximum dividends on the research money for affected patients and their relatives.

Alzheimerfonden also encourages collaboration between researchers at different universities. The goal of the Alzheimerfonden is to be an important research financier in this work. In the absence of effective medicines, it is also important to research the best preventive measures for Alzheimer’s disease.

Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. Since our founding 100 years ago, we’ve changed the lives of more than 1 billion children. In the United States and around the world, we give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. We do whatever it takes for children – every day and in times of crisis – transforming their lives and the future we share. Follow them on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.

ESA has worked to fundraise for Save the Children since ESA 2016. Over the course of several events, ESA has raised over $200,000 for their global effort.
