Founded in 1961 and with members (chapters) in more than 100 countries around the world, the International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE) is an international network organisation. Our mission is to improve the social condition and quality of life of people with epilepsy and those who care for them.
We recognise the person with epilepsy as our primary stakeholder and focus on public engagement, health information, international advocacy, best practice exchange and supporting epilepsy communities.
We work collaboratively with our partner epilepsy-related organisations (professional, lay and governmental), and we are transparent and democratic in our governance and decision-making.
IBE is a US-registered not-for-profit organisation (Charter ID 721834-DNP) with tax-exempt status 501(c)(3). EID 59:2606654.
The Epilepsy & Pregnancy project has been developed with financial support from Sanofi, which has had no editorial control over project content.
