WBD 2022

World Brain Day (WBD) 2022 is dedicated to the theme “Brain Health for all” as our brains continue to be challenged by pandemics, wars, climate change and the myriad of disorders impacting human existence globally.

The brain consists of many billions of electrical wires known as neurons.
This distance is the equivalent of travelling around the earth four times in a row! It is thought that there are about a hundred billion neurons within the human brain. There are about ten trillion connections between these neurons that help us read, write, watch, learn, plan, think, feel, move, and solve problems daily.

WBD 2022 is dedicated to the theme “ Brain Health for all”.

WBD 2022 campaign will be focusing on these five key messages globally:

Awareness Brain health is vital for mental, social, and physical wellbeing
Prevention Many brain diseases are preventable
Advocacy Global efforts are required for optimal brain health
Education Education for all is key for brain health
Access Equitable access to resources, treatment, and rehabilitation is essential for brain health

We invite neurologists, neuroscientists, health professionals, trainees, technologists, advocacy bodies, patient support groups, and other activists to become part of the 2022 World Brain Day campaign.

You can participate by posting our banner advertisement on your webpage and sharing our posts, messages, and videos with your friends and colleagues. You can partner with local neurology societies and organisations to promote these activities. Please encourage people with any neurological disorder and their caregivers to contribute by sharing their stories via a short video message (less than 90 seconds) and emailing the video to wbd2022@wfneurology.org.

Feel free to use the educational resources freely available for you to lead a successful World Brain Day campaign at your institution or Organisation this year.

We, the co-chairs of the WBD campaign, will try our very best to visit your association, society, and regional group virtually soon. Let us see how we can expand the WBD 2022 to every household in your region and country. Let us work together to build a better world with better brain health.
