Sammanfattning

Epilepsy in Sudan accounts for 1.6 annual mortality rates and 238.7 disability adjusted life years per 100 000. These figures are higher among females; children and young adults. It is associated with notable stigma and social burdens. Patients of epilepsy are subjected to various forms of social discrimination that affect their quality of life. They are isolated, neglected and deprived of their education and employments rights and not able to achieve normal social and family life. Aiming at highlighting social implications of epilepsy among Sudanese patients, this study found that social encumbrances due to epilepsy in Sudan are more prevalent among highly vulnerable groups like women, children and poor populations living in remote areas. Lack of trained medical personnel in neurology and the medical equipment's required for proper diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy in Sudan are key reasons aggravating social and health burden of epilepsy both among patients and their caregivers.
