The #BrainLifeGoals campaign is an initiative of the European Federation of Neurological Associations [EFNA] that aims to raise awareness of the impact of neurological disorders.
In 2020, in the framework of our #BrainLifeGoals campaign, EFNA is once again providing grants to support work on one of our chosen advocacy themes. This year’s focus is on:
Ensuring Equitable Access to Treatment, Services and Support for Neurology Patients and their Carers
Access to treatment is one of the central #BrainLifeGoals of many neurology patients, and we want to help make that a reality across Europe! EFNA will provide 10 grants of €3,000 each to selected organisations, working to address this theme.
26 applications were received from across Europe, all featuring exciting projects.
The European Academy of Neurology (EAN) supported this initiative through the participation of board member, David Vodušek, in the judging panel.
