The #BrainLifeGoals campaign is an initiative of the European Federation of Neurological Associations [EFNA] that aims to raise awareness of the impact of neurological disorders.
In 2020, in the framework of our #BrainLifeGoals campaign, EFNA is once again providing grants to support work on one of our chosen advocacy themes. This years focus is on:
Ensuring Equitable Access to Treatment, Services and Support for Neurology Patients and their Carers
Access to treatment is one of the central #BrainLifeGoals of many neurology patients, and we want to help make that a reality across Europe! EFNA will provide 10 grants of €3,000 each to selected organisations, working to address this theme.
26 applications were received from across Europe, all featuring exciting projects.
