CareEpilepsy Ethiopia

Map of Africa imageCareEpilepsy Ethiopia is the national subsidiary of CareEpilepsy, a charitable organization based in the United Kingdom. CareEpilepsy Ethiopia aims to achieve a better quality of life for people affected by epilepsy in Ethiopia. It encompasses the full spectrum of issues: medical treatment, stigma and social barriers, well-being, research and strengthening the role of health providers to enable delivery of effective, efficient and quality epilepsy services.

Without ‘FOCUS’ and a strong voice, Epilepsy will continue to be neglected and stigmatized notwithstanding so many patients in Ethiopia are severely impacted by the condition.With everyone’s help, this can stop being a major issue for Epilepsy patients in Ethiopia, and around the world as well.

The goal of our work is to address the epilepsy needs of people in Africa through quality, culturally competent, evidence-based, equitable and cost-effective care.
