International Epilepsy Day 2024
International Epilepsy Day, observed annually on the second Monday of February, is a global initiative dedicated to raising awareness about epilepsy, a neurological condition characterised by recurrent seizures. On this day, organisations, healthcare professionals, and communities worldwide join forces to dispel myths, reduce stigma, and promote a better understanding of epilepsy. Through various events, educational campaigns, and community activities, International Epilepsy Day seeks to foster empathy, support early diagnosis and treatment, and advocate for improved resources and services for individuals living with epilepsy. The day serves as a platform to unite people across borders, encouraging a more inclusive and compassionate approach towards those affected by epilepsy.
