International Epilepsy Day is observed each year on the 2nd Monday of February. It is an opportunity to raise awareness of the condition and what can be done to be treated.

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder – epileptic seizures are mainly caused by abnormal electrical activity in the brain. More than 50 million people worldwide have epilepsy – it is one of the oldest-known medical conditions and the fourth most common neurological disorder.

Early diagnosis and treatment are important to prevent the disease from progressing and causing long-term side effects. With the right treatment, most patients can live a normal life.

Although great advancements in epilepsy treatment have been achieved, there is still more research needed in order to provide better treatment options for patients suffering from this disease.
