Policy momentum is building-up with the development by the WHO Brain Health Unit of the Global Action Plan on epilepsy and other neurological disorders [GAP], to be adopted by the World Health Assembly in May 2022. The GAP represents a unique opportunity worldwide to build, with all relevant stakeholders, an integrated response to neurology across the life course and within healthcare systems to improve lives of people living with neurological disorders. However, we need to mobilise the community to ensure that the plan serves the needs of all those living with neurological disorders across the globe!
Objectives of the Workshop:
To present the first draft of the GAP to advocates worldwide
To present the views of the OneNeurology Partnership on the first draft of the GAP
To bring together neurology advocates from across the world (regional and national), to gather their perspectives on the GAP – based on their region/disease area/stakeholder group.
To empower global advocates with the information, tools and resources needed to ensure a coordinated response to the GAP consultation via submissions, regional hearings and outreach to national policy makers.
