Even though epilepsy happens to be one of the most cost effective disorders to treat, there are twice as many victims in low and middle income countries as compared to the richer nations.

Lack of adherence to treatment and stigma about the disease are some of the biggest challenges in management of the disease in underprivileged nations.
