Epilepsy Is a Threat to Public Health, Says International Report

The World Health Organization, in collaboration with the International League Against Epilepsy and the International Bureau of Epilepsy, recently released the first global report on epilepsy. Epilepsy: a public health imperative, co-authored by Dr. Hiral Shah, calls for “sustained and coordinated action to ensure that every person with epilepsy has access to the care and treatment they need, and the opportunity to live free from stigma and discrimination in all parts of the world.”
