International Epilepsy Day is a special event which aims to promote the awareness of epilepsy. Every year on the second Monday of February people in more than 120 countries will organize different activities to highlight the problems faced by patients with epilepsy.
The International Epilepsy Day is a joint initiative by two organizations: the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) and the International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE).
The aims of the International Epilepsy Day are to give supports to patients with the disease, to promote public awareness by holding publicity campaigns and to support research to find new treatments.
