Princess Muna Al Hussein has been named as an honorary global ambassador of Alzheimer’s Disease International.

Prince Muna, the mother of King Abdullah II of Jordan, is the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) patron of nursing and midwifery in the Eastern Mediterranean region and an honorary adviser for the WHO Collaborating Centre for Nursing Development in Jordan.

She commented, “I am delighted to have been appointed an Honorary Ambassador of ADI. Dementia is a condition which affects millions globally, with particularly high numbers forecast for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

“In my capacity as Honorary Ambassador, I look forward to raising awareness of dementia as we work towards improving the lives of all of those living with the condition, their carers and families.”

Other global ambassadors include Queen Silvia of Sweden and Queen Sofia of Spain.

On her appointment, ADI CEO Paola Barbarino said, “Her Royal Highness’ outstanding work in global health and nursing will be critical for raising awareness about the condition, which is expected to affect over 13.8 million people by 2050 in the MENA region.”
