International Epilepsy Day is an annual event organised by the International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE) and the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE).
This day is mainly used by the epilepsy community to help promote the implementation of the 'World Health Organisation’s [WHO] 10-year Intersectoral Global Action Plan on Epilepsy and other Neurological Disorders (2022-2031)' or IGAP, which is a 10 year roadmap designed to strengthen the public health approach to epilepsy and to close the major treatment and inclusion gaps for people with epilepsy worldwide.

To celebrate International Epilepsy Day, Resus Rangers are asking Primary Schools to encourage their pupils to share their stories about how their journey with epilepsy began, where they are on their journey now, and where they want to be!
