Dia Internacional de la epilepsia
Dia Internacional de la epilepsia 2021 (Mario A. Alonso Vanegas)
Hoy 8 de febrero de 2021 es un día muy especial para todas las personas que formamos parte de esta comunidad asistencial, scientífica y social. Tras estos meses de pandemia que han desgastado a la humanidad es grato estar hoy presente para unir juntos la voz, la voz de la esperanza. Personalmente es un día y un tiempo muy importante al ser el primer año del periodo que estaré como presidente de la Comisión de Asuntos Latinoamericanos de la ILAE, nos esperan momentos de mucho trabajo y unión para continuar en el camino de la lucha para sacar la epilepsia de las sombras.
The ILAE - Latin America region comprises South and Middle America and Mexico where Spanish and Portuguese are the main languages spoken. Within the framework and according to the strategic plan of the central ILAE, the goal of the ILAE-Latin America is to serve as a regional resource for current and emerging knowledge on epilepsy prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and research.
Current efforts of the ILAE-Latin America are focused on the development of national epilepsy programs and laws and telemedicine projects in the region. In the field of education, courses are being organized for the primary health level as well as specialized epilepsy care.
As the region is extremely heterogeneous, an effort is being made to provide equal learning opportunities for health professionals in rich and poor countries and areas. Guidelines and seminal scientific articles that are available only in English are being translated into Spanish and Portuguese to increase access to knowledge.
