International Epilepsy Day on 8 February

Every year, International Epilepsy Day offers a special opportunity for the world to pause and reflect on some of the challenges faced by people living with epilepsy, their families and carers. This Monday, the 8th February 2021, people from over 130 countries will take part in this initiative created by the International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE) and the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE). https://internationalepilepsyday.org/

50 million people across the globe are affected by epilepsy, according to WHO/OMS official figures, and it can have a profound impact on many aspects of their lives. Living with epilepsy can be a daily challenge, and one which affects people in all kinds of ways. At My Medic Watch, International Epilepsy Day is an occasion very close to our hearts. Our app can be used by those with epilepsy, and can provide tremendous assistance when a person experiences a seizure. It is particularly beneficial for people who are living alone, or those wanting more independence, but can also be used by anyone living with epilepsy, even those in aged care facilities.
