The International Bureau for Epilepsy provides assistance by offering international support, by creating means for worldwide exchange of information and, where possible, by setting standards which provide an international policy focus and identity for all persons with epilepsy. Much of this work is accomplished through the IBE working commissions, composed of volunteers who are experts in their subjects.
To improve international understanding of epilepsy, IBE publishes a quarterly magazine, the International Epilepsy News, which keeps readers informed on international developments. In addition, IBE publishes a comprehensive range of reports and information booklets covering a wide range of subjects, including education, employment, insurance, driving regulations and self-help groups.
