Epilepsy Foundation


In an attempt to break the common belief that epilepsy fits have something to do with supernatural powers or being possessed, the Epilepsy Foundation, in association with National health Mission, Government of Maharashtra has been organizing free epilepsy camps across the state. It has managed to break the stigma attached with epilepsy, particularly in rural areas, by helping to diagnose and providing appropriate treatment. So far, 31 epilepsy camps have been organised wherein 12,000 patients have been given treatment. A majority of such patients are leading a respectful life today.
