Resolution on Global Actions on Epilepsy adopted by WHA
ILAE is pleased to announce that on 12th November 2020 during the 73rd World Health Assembly, Member States unanimously approved a Resolution to develop a 10-year Intersectoral Global Action Plan on Epilepsy and Other Neurological Disorders.
This historic accomplishment was the culmination of outstanding collaboration among leading organizations including the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE), International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE), World Federation of Neurology (WFN), and European Federation of Neurological Associations (EFNA) and technical support from the WHO Secretariat.
These results provide support for the importance of medication adherence and intensified AED treatment for patients with poorly controlled GTCS in the effort to reduce SUDEP risk and suggest that comedication with statins may reduce risk.
