Collaborative projects between ICNA and CNS continue to expand. These programs focus on improving infrastructure in different countries in Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America, and include donations of EEG machines, creation of safe EEG laboratories, long-term training of EEG technologies and creation of epilepsy surgery programs (El Salvador, Central America). These programs improved availability of neurodiagnostic tests and specialized surgeries, such as hemispherectomies, temporal lobectomies of implantation of VNS systems for children living in poor resource areas. The key to such initiatives is the ongoing development, support and sustainability through continued interaction with the centres. In collaboration with the CNS the ICNA intends to strengthen these programs to ensure that they become independent and ideally can widen their capacity to other local centres.
