The SIG will start with presentation and a discussion of the results of a recently published systemic review of global health and epilepsy. This will be followed by an introduction and discussion of the newly created ILAE Web based database for Global Health projects. The SIG will include a presentation by Dr. Ed Trevathan on epilepsy care for "the other 50%," and Dr. Omar Siddiqi will discuss his work on epilepsy care in Zambia. This will lead into a discussion of collaboration on global health projects from both an epilepsy societal perspective and/or an individual perspective.
