Abstract: Epilepsy is particularly challenging for resource-poor countries and in turn for Asia which is likely to have greater challenges in terms of treatment cost and deficit, premature mortality, health transitions, population and poverty size, etc. Here we present an example of working in one of the resource-poor ‘least-talked-about’ populations to demonstrate that finding financial means and achieving cross-country cooperation over a long period of time is possible even in countries with currently limited resources. Conducting such cooperation could be a model for other initiatives. Scientific, capacity-building, and political tools should be employed to generate local representative data and influence government policies. These measures can be of immediate benefit for patients in these countries.Copyright © 2013 S. Karger AG, Basel.
