The First Ever Internal Neurology Day Celebrated Worldwide
Pakistan, along with the rest of the world, celebrated the first ever International Neurology Day. 13% of the worldwide population and 10% of Pakistan’s population suffers from neurological issues. In developing countries, neurological diseases become the cause of dehat for up to 12% of the population (figures range between 4-11% for more developed countries). Unfortunately, there is very little data available in Pakistan on the incidence and cases of neurological diseases. However, estimates suggest that 250 Pakistanis out of every 1 lakh suffer from stroke during their lives.
