Epilepsy in developing countries. Workshop. Heemstede NLD, 1993/06/25.
In the late ninety-seventies it was clear to a group of people in Kenya that the clinic for children with epilepsy, which the Kenya Government had run at the Kenyatta National Hospital, was by far not enough to cope with the needs of people with epilepsy in the country.
Sixteen doctors and lay persons joined forces in 1982 to form the Kenya Association for the Welfare of Epileptics (KAWE).
The KAWE decided to start and experimental clinic for children with epilepsy in Mathare Valley, which is 5 km from the Kenyattra Hospital and is one of the underprivileged areas of Nairobi.
