Overview

The second edition of the Neurology Atlas represents updated information on the status of neurological services and provision of neurological care from 132 countries and two Associate Members/ territories covering 94% of the world population. The data demonstrates that the available resources for neurological disorders within most countries remain insufficient. In addition, there are large inequalities across regions and different income levels with extremely scanty resources in lower income countries illustrating the need for substantial increase in neurology services and training.
