Neurological disorders tend to be chronic, life-long conditions. Connected to the central and peripheral nervous system, neurological disorders are one disease family. Although there is a huge variety of disorders and patient profiles – all of which have their own set of complications – there are many common symptoms to be addressed, such as pain, fatigue, cognitive challenges, dizziness, seizures and sleep disorders.

92% of those living with neurological disorders report feeling affected by stigma on account of the disorder they have.

Soaring figures highlight why it is time to act now: Neurological disorders have the highest prevalence, biggest disability and the greatest cost among non-communicable diseases (NCDs). They are also the fastest-growing cause of deaths among NCDs. More recently, we have seen a significant correlation between COVID-19 and neurological disorders.
The picture is striking: the investment in care and research does not match the increasing burden at all levels.

Let’s unite our voices and work together to make neurology a global health priority!

We need to give our policy and decision makers the information they need to prioritise neurology and drive change at the governance, healthcare and public research level. We need the medical and scientific community to work towards breakthroughs. Finally, we hope the patient community will see the value of adding a bundled approach to the mix, as this will improve access to care, increase funding and enable more prevention.
