The Global Information Kit on Epilepsy has been developed as part of the WHO Programme on Reducing the Epilepsy Treatment Gap to support implementation of WHA68.20 recommendations. It provides general information about epilepsy, an overview of current pilot projects as examples of what can be achieved, and actions that can be taken by specific stakeholder groups with reference to WHA68.20.

The intended audiences for the Global Information Kit on Epilepsy are policymakers, specialist and non-specialist health care providers, people living with epilepsy and their families, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and the general public.
