International Epilepsy Day February 13, 2017
Hi, I'm Campi, the official #EpilepsyDay mascot. Learn more about my epilepsy story here.
Global event celebrated annually on the 2nd Monday of February to promote awareness of epilepsy right around the world.
International Epilepsy Day is a special event which promotes awareness of epilepsy in more than 120 countries each year. Every year on the second Monday of February people join together to celebrate and highlight the problems faced by people with epilepsy, their families and carers.
This is a day for everyone, no matter where you are, no matter how small your group or large your area, no matter whether you focus on the medical or the social aspects of the disease. We want you to help us celebrate International Epilepsy Day! Let’s speak with one global voice.
The Day is a joint initiative by the International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE) and the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE).
International Epilepsy Day is celebrated in hundreds of countries around the world. Many have already scheduled events and activities to celebrate and mark the day. Find an event near you and show your support for International Epilepsy Day.
