Epilepsy Medication

After a research carried out by Home of Hope in its operational areas in Jinja district, it realized that there were a big number of epileptic patients in the villages who were not being treated. So the organization with help of its partners started a free monthly epilepsy medication program. This is carried out during outreach clinics. This program is currently reaching an average of up to 70 (seventy) clients per clinic. However there is still need to continue sensitizing the local communities on the condition and the secondary disabilities that may occur as a result of severe epilepsy. The types of drugs used during the clinics inclide:phenytoin, phenobarbitone, carbamazepine and folic acid.
