Recently, Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI) stressed that around 75% of people living with dementia globally are still not receiving a diagnosis. In this commentary, I reflect on how efforts towards better cognitive assessments, particularly of memory, can be aligned and harmonized to contribute to such needs. I highlight some barriers that ongoing collaborations and trials are facing and their potential drivers. I suggest some strategies that can help overcome them and in so doing, integrate research agendas. We need to ignite the debate towards strategies that can help level the playfield to tackle Alzheimer's disease with true global solutions.
