World Parkinson's Day - 2019

World Parkinson's Day icon

#UniteForParkinsons is a global Parkinson’s campaign – launched on 11 April 2017 by the EPDA and Parkinson’s UK. The campaign aims to raise unprecedented awareness of Parkinson’s around the world and to grow an active global Parkinson’s community.

Last year, people from 90 countries used the #UniteForParkinsons hashtag, and in 2018 we want to make an even bigger noise. With a bigger and more active community, we can encourage a bigger focus on Parkinson’s and the need for more collaborative research around the world. And with your help on 11 April 2018 – World Parkinson's Day – we can show the world what living with Parkinson's truly means.

Check out the campaign website – – to get a taste of what happened on the day last year. There were literally thousands of thoughts, messages and photos from one side of the globe to another.
