WFN Neurological Needs Registry

Hundreds of millions of people worldwide are affected by neurological disorders, and millions of them are disabled or die each year. The disease burden of neurological disorders, particularly in low to middle-income countries, is expected to grow exponentially in the next decade. Despite this, major barriers such as lack of therapeutics, facilities, specialist nurses and neurologists continue to negatively affect the quality of neurological care.

In partnership with its member societies, the World Federation of Neurology is compiling an inventory of the most important deficiencies causing inequalities in the prevention and care of neurological disorders. The WFN registry of needs will provide an essential real-world view that will assist the WFN in identifying disparities in the delivery and quality of neurological care and inform decisions prioritising and targeting future remedying efforts.

We are asking selected neurologists from each WFN Member Society to complete our survey that has fourteen questions and takes about fifteen minutes to complete. Please answer to the best of your ability and feel free to consult with colleagues if you do not know the answers to any of the questions.

Thank you very much for your time and valuable contribution to fostering quality neurology and brain health worldwide!
