WHO

The World Health Assembly, the supreme decision-making body of the World Health Organi­za­tion, unani­mously adopted a resolu­tion on epilepsy in 2015. It encour­ages member countries to strive to improve the care of people with epilepsy. It notes that govern­ments should imple­ment measures to improve and protect the rights of people living with epilepsy. It also states that in countries with low and medium incomes, anti-epileptic drugs should be made more avail­able and afford­able.

The Swiss Epilepsy League backed the resolu­tion and supports the WHO measures.
