World Brain Day 2020

WFN2

This year for World Brain Day, the World Federation of Neurology is partnering with the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society to raise awareness for Parkinson’s Disease.

 

There are more than 7 million people of all age groups with Parkinson’s Disease worldwide, and the illness affects many more than this number through its impact on families and carers.
 
Parkinson’s is a chronic, neurodegenerative whole-body disease that affects movement and almost all aspects of brain function. Its prevalence continues to rise at an alarming rate, making the actions of today vital to improving the lives of those who have been and will be diagnosed.
 
The goal is to diagnose earlier, treat more efficiently and improve the lives of those living with this disease and of their caregivers, for which additional resources are needed to help better understand and treat Parkinson’s.
 
COVID-19 is a dramatic reminder that healthcare is a global issue. Parkinson’s disease is also a daily challenge faced by all ages and people, mainly by the elderly.
