IBE and ILAE work with, and on behalf of, all people with epilepsy – wherever they live in the world – to promote care and treatment, to improve understanding and inclusion, and to address discrimination in all its forms.

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.
