World Brain Day 2023

The focus of World Brain Day is on Brain Health and Disability. It underscores the need to prioritize brain health, especially in people with  disability. Many neurological disorders can lead to disabilities that affect an individual’s quality of life, such as mobility, cognitive functioning and emotional well-being.

“This World Brain Day will provide a vital opportunity to fight for the equality of people with disabilities on a global scale. Through advocacy and policy changes, our collective voices will spark a worldwide movement for better health care access.”
– Prof. Tissa Wijeratne, Co-Chair of World Brain Day
