Fighting cerebral palsy in Africa Cerebral palsy aff ects children across Africa. Prevention is difficult since we know little about its aetiology in African countries, and efforts to help those affected are hampered by a lack of resources. But individuals and organisations are rising to the challenge. Adrian Burton reports.
The 2nd African Epilepsy Congress (AEC) will take place in Cape Town, South Africa, on 22nd - 24th May 2014. This congress is built on the scientific foundations established through the 1st African Epilepsy Congress, held in Nairobi, June 21st - 23rd, 2012. The 2nd AEC is a significant scientific event for the epilepsy community in Africa and farther afield. The programme comprises plenary sessions, topical lectures, interactive sessions, as well as sessions of particular interest to people with epilepsy, their families and carers. We very much look forward to welcoming you to Cape Town next May. http://www.epilepsycapetown2014.org/ Congress Announcement [PDF]undefined
