Importance & Scope:

Epilepsy is a chronic disorder of the brain that affects people of all ages. According to WHO (World Health Organization) statistics; Around 50 million people in the world have epilepsy. The estimated proportion of the general population with active epilepsy (i.e. continuing seizures or the need for treatment) at a given time is between 4 to 10 per 1000 people. Nearly 80% of the people with epilepsy are found in developing regions. However, some studies in developing countries suggest that the proportion is between 6 to 10 per 1000. In developed countries, annual new cases are between 40 to 70 per 100 000 people in the general population. In developing countries, this figure is often close to twice as high due to the higher risk of experiencing conditions which leads to permanent brain damage. Close to 80% of epilepsy cases worldwide are found in developing regions. The risk of premature death in people with epilepsy is two to three times higher than it is for the general population. 1
