CareEpilepsy Ethiopia

Map of Africa imageCareEpilepsy Ethiopia is a charitable organization based in  Ethiopia. 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.
