    Abstract

    Two of the key constitutional responsibilities of the World Health Organization (WHO) are research and promotion of research in different areas of health and fostering cooperation among scientific and professional groups that contribute to the advancement of health.(1) Although often seen as a highly specialized area of medicine, neurology has been included in the WHO research programs for more than 2 decades. Over the years, WHO has particularly focused on neurological disorders of public health importance, ie, disorders that occur frequently, cause substantial disability, and create a burden on individuals, families, communities, and societies all over the world.(2).
