Welcome to the International League Against Epilepsy

The world's preeminent association of health care professionals and scientists working toward a world where no person's life is limited by epilepsy

A message from the ILAE Executive Committee

The nomination for election to any ILAE office is based on previously discussed and approved eligibility criteria, and on what an individual has contributed to the mission and vision of the ILAE. The ILAE is not involved in national or international politics but is an organization striving for a world where no person’s life is limited by epilepsy; an organization based on the principle of inclusion of all health professionals who support people with epilepsy no matter where they live in the world and an organization that promotes the overarching principle of medical neutrality.
