The China Alzheimer's Project was launched in 2009 by the China Contemporary TCM Institute (an NGO under the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine). Its mission is to raise public awareness on prevention, care, and knowledge of Alzheimer's disease and to reduce the incidence of such disease. To do so, the organization has carried out various activities such as education, research, and advocacy. It also established cooperation with the Nursing School of Peking University Medical Center in 2010 to jointly develop education and training programs.
