According to the latest World Health Organization (WHO) data, neurological diseases represent 10% of all diseases, while 8 out of 10 forms of disability are caused by neurological problems. The life expectancy of people with disabilities caused by chronic neurological diseases (Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, Epilepsy, Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of Dementia, Stroke) has increased by 15% in the last decade.
Most of these diseases are chronic and gravely serious and most were incurable, deadly in previous decades. With the enormous progress of health sciences and the creation of new therapeutic molecules, they have switched to reversible diseases with impressive progression and survival.
It is possible to develop a primary healthcare program for these individuals, which includes: A) Clinical Neurological examination & evaluation of the need for further control B) Coverage of basic needs for diagnostic approach, pharmaceutical support, rehabilitation.
