International Epilepsy Day 2023 Report

30 June, 2023

International Epilepsy Day is an annual event organized by the International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE) and the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) to raise awareness about epilepsy and its impact on individuals, families and communities around the world.

2023 Theme

Epilepsy affects almost every aspect of a person's life. Often, people living with epilepsy find dealing with the stigma attached to the illness more challenging than dealing with the disease itself. Misconceptions and myths often contribute to the stigma surrounding epilepsy.

This year’s International Epilepsy Day campaign sought to dispel these myths. By sharing facts about epilepsy, we wanted to challenge public misconceptions about epilepsy.
