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 is easily 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.
Help us to raise awareness of epilepsy stigma by walking 50,000,000 steps ahead of International Epilepsy Day, 13 February 2023.
Together, we’ve taken 122,009,748 steps since the campaign began three years ago.
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!
