Challenge

Epilepsy is one of the major brain disorders worldwide according to the World Health Organization. WHO estimates 10 million people in Africa live with epilepsy, 80% or eight million are not treated with readily available modern drugs. About 3% of Malawi's 18 million people has epilepsy according to the Malawi National Epilepsy Association. Without appropriate treatment Epilepsy takes a toll causing impaired physical, psychological and social functioning of those affected

Solution

Children with Epilepsy attending the Epilepsy Clinic at the Children of Blessing Trust main centre or Outreach Clinics will be assessed by health professionals and will have access to appropriate treatment. The parents or caregivers are also instructed on how to take the medication correctly.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide 175 children with the appropriate medications allowing their seizures to be controlled which will then enable the children to get an education and live a productive life.
