Epilepsy is one of the most prevalent neurological diseases, affecting approximately 50 million people worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.
In spite of the fact that epilepsy can be controlled, it remains stigmatized due to long-standing misconceptions and myths.
There are many forms of stigma and discrimination. For example, children may be excluded from school activities or social events and adults with epilepsy may feel overlooked for jobs they could easily carry out.
In the three years since the campaign began, nearly 300,000,000 steps have been taken.
This year, we want to achieve even more.
More steps. More awareness. More lives improved.
And our goal can only be achieved with your help!
