Epilepsy in developing countries. Workshop. Heemstede NLD, 1993/06/25.
Despite its magnitude and importance, and the existence of effective means of control, epilepsy has not yet been recognized as a public health priority in a majority of countries.
Among the several reasons which can explain this undue state of affairs are those related to lack of information and to administrative barriers.
In this paper these reasons will briefly be reviewed, as well as possible means of overcoming them, in the light of previous experience of the World Health Organization (WHO).
