In this episode Sam Pauly meets four neurologists to discuss the challenges faced in India across the life course.  We’ll examine the role that brain health can play in India; how it can be promoted and its role in prevention of and protection from neurological disorders.

We’ll learn more on what it’s like to live with a neurological disorder in India, both as a child and as an elderly person and we’ll hear more from the WHO on the Intersectoral Global Action Plan on Epilepsy and Other Neurological Disorders which was adopted in 2022.
