In 1993, the World Health Organization launched a global initiative aimed at increasing public and professional awareness of the public health aspects of neurological disorders. The initial phase of this project has been carried out through the organization of a series of symposia on prevalence, severity and costs of neurological disorders including dementia, stroke, epilepsy and headache. The main objective of the next phase of the project is to develop an international educational programme on neurology and public health and to establish a network of training centres in different regions of the world.
