This call for proposals aims to provide the necessary data for allocation of adequate resources for a high-quality epilepsy care equal in all EU countries thus closing the treatment gap, preventing the devastating consequences of epilepsy, reducing unemployment, stigma, and isolation, and securing improved quality of life for people with epilepsy, all in line with the recommendations of the European Parliament’s Written Declaration on Epilepsy.
Priorities and funded actions:
– To build a sustainable system for measuring the burden of epilepsy at EU level in the long term, involving NGOs, stakeholders, and Government organisations, without the need for further financial support from the EU budget
– To create and demonstrate sufficient value for Member States to motivate long term support by funders at national level, and also to ensure appropriate dissemination of results among budgetary decision makers, and practical support for establishing long term co-operation
– Identification of good practices
– Establishment of recommendations for better epilepsy care across Europe
The proposed action is a standardised, prospective population-based study carried out in representative regions in at least 8-12 EU Member States in order to study stigma, public attitudes, incidence, prevalence, cost of epilepsy and access to and organisation of epilepsy care
