WHA Side Event: Epilepsy: A public health priority
On 22 May 2019, this WHA Side Event brought together policy makers, NGOs, patients, health care leaders and Member States to develop next steps for implementing Resdolution WHA68.20. Ministries of Health from different WHO regions identified the underlying systemic issues that affect access to universal health care (UHC) and essential medicines for persons with epilepsy in their regions. The newly crafted Global Epilepsy report was presented, and key directions for an Epilepsy Action Plan was identified. The speakers addressed the barriers to epilepsy care, made recommendations to strengthen systems and practices, and issued a call for urgent action by all key stakeholders nationally and internationally.
