Study of changes in knowledge and attitudes related to epilepsy in different groups of the society after ten years of intervention in Georgia

Over the past 10 years, multifaceted and wide-ranging actions have been taken to address the problem of epilepsy in Georgia, and attitudes towards epilepsy are expected to change. Evaluating the impact of these interventions on changing the degree of epilepsy stigma and determining further measures to combat stigma is impossible without determining the current level of stigma, which requires appropriate study with valid tools in different groups of society.
