Chair: Carlos N. Ketzoian




The Neuroepidemiology Group of the WFN is active in the area of teaching and research, and contributing to the neurological Global Burden of Disease project. Projects concern neurological diseases, using new estimates of burden like DALY, that take into account both disability and premature deaths. There is active participation in general projects on risk factors and mortality. The group has succeeded to get a small pilot grant to develop an epidemiologic course in low-income countries.
