About ILAE

Happy International Epilepsy Day 2022!

International Epilepsy Day has been celebrated on the second Monday of February since 2015. It provides a platform for people with epilepsy to share their experience and stories from around the world. This year is rather special as it falls on the 14th of February – St. Valentine’s Day. So, we are hoping that many people from around the world will be able to reach out and share a heart and a smile with someone they know in their family, at their school, or in their community who lives with epilepsy.
