The Atlas: Epilepsy Care in the World is one of the most important projects within the framework of the ILAE/IBE/WHO Global Campaign Against Epilepsy (GCAE) “Out of the Shadows”, representing a major collaborative effort involving WHO headquarters, regional and country offices and ILAE and IBE headquarters and their members.

The objectives of the project Atlas include collection, compilation and dissemination of relevant information about resources for mental and neurological conditions in countries. The first document in this series was published in 2001 as the Atlas of mental health resources in the world, followed by the Atlas of country resources for neurological disorders in 2004. Among other findings, epilepsy was confirmed as one of the major brain disorders worldwide.
