The Spanish Federation for Epilepsy (FEDE) was founded on April 1st 2006, with the cooperation of 15 regional Spanish associations. Today we represent 20 associations.

Our aim is to improve the quality of life for people with epilepsy and their families. To do so we inform society about epilepsy, we fight to achieve rights for people with epilepsy, we encourage people to join the regional associations or to create new ones if they don’t exist, we search for real data about epilepsy and we help researchers who are working on treatments for a better comprehension of epilepsy.

This year is the second time that an epilepsy Research Fair takes place, at which basic science researchers, medical researchers and technical developers will present their work to patients, families, other researchers and students to improve diagnosis, treatment and the daily life of people with epilepsy.

The “Conocer la epilepsia nos hace iguales” (knowing epilepsy makes us equal) campaign with UCB Laboratories has translated facts about epilepsy for more than 100,000 children, improving the future generation’s understanding of the difficulties faced by people with epilepsy.

This is the eigth year of this campaign and FEDE are very grateful to UCB for their help.
