Organized by the International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE) and the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) the day is typically marked by events and activities such as educational seminars and public awareness campaigns.

In 2023, International Epilepsy Day will focus on the stigma people living with epilepsy face around the world.

This year’s International Epilepsy Day campaign seeks to dispel these myths. By sharing facts about epilepsy, we will challenge public misconceptions about epilepsy.

It’s important to educate ourselves and others about the facts about epilepsy and to dispel these myths and misconceptions. This can help to reduce the stigma and discrimination faced by people living with epilepsy and ensure that they have access to the same opportunities and rights as everyone else.

Help us spread awareness of Epilepsy Facts vs Myths by sharing our messages online and making your own.
