Today we would like to share the success story of these charitable trust- Vijay epilepsy Care Foundation & Shree Bidada Sarvoday trust with Dr. J Nathan for Epilepsy and Anganwadi camp.
But before that let us know what is the motive of these trusts for epilepsy patients.
OUR MISSON……. SEIZURE FREEDOM
12 million Indians across age groups have epilepsy (1% of population). 90% can attain complete seizure freedom with medication, special ketogenic diet or rarely surgery.
The course of treatment is at least 5 years, but some may need lifelong treatment. Only 10-20% of persons with Epilepsy (PWEs) receive regular, sustained and appropriate treatment in India due to various reasons like inadequate finances for sustained treatment, poor awareness, abysmal counseling and superstitious beliefs.
Vijay Epilepsy Care Foundation (VECF) and Shree Bidada Sarvodya Trust, Kutch along with Dr. Janak Nathan and his team aims at reducing the huge treatment gap by organizing
Triannual epilepsy camps in Kutch, Gujarat since 28 years
- Total 60 camps
- Around four hundred patients treated in each camp.
- Two hundred EEGs recorded in each camp.
- Medication supplied at 60% discount.
