The Global Parkinson's Pledge was launched to inspire a global
Parkinson’s movement to make Parkinson’s a priority health, social, and economic issue and to advance research to find a cure.
Advancing the Cure | Providing the Care | Raising the Consciousness
More than 25,000 people from 113 countries have signed the pledge. Have YOU signed it?
By signing the pledge, you will be joining a global Parkinson's
movement for change. The Pledge is the lasting legacy of the World
Parkinson Congress 2010 in Glasgow, Scotland. It will be used by the global
Parkinson's community to highlight the urgency of better care for people
with Parkinson's and when we reach 100,000 signatures, we will present this pledge to the World Health Organisation
and other leading government bodies to help showcase the urgent need to
invest in better care options for people living with chronic
degenerative disease such as Parkinson's.

The World Parkinson Congress is pleased to be able to launch
this Global Parkinson's Pledge written and designed for the
international Parkinson's community. As a pledge open to anyone touched
by Parkinson's, it reminds us that moving the Parkinson's agenda forward
is something everyone can participate in. You don't have to be a
politician or world leader to sign this pledge. The more names we gather
on the pledge, the bigger the message will be regarding how many
people are affected by this disease and the quicker we'll draw attention
to our need to offer better care for patients and in finding a cure.
