Why do people with epilepsy need to form an association
- To have a united voice when advocating for their rights.
- To contribute towards their medication to reduce the costs of buying on a personal basis and ensure sufficient supply
- Government listens and respects people who are organized in groups.
- To come out of the shadows and be counted among those whom government has to plan for.
