I am the program developer at the ROW Foundation (ROW = "rest of world"). Our focus is on funding programs in epilepsy (and associated psychiatric disorders) that improve training for healthcare professionals, as well as narrowing epilepsy treatment gaps by providing EEG equipment and ongoing medication grants of anti-epileptic drugs to hospitals, clinics and patient organizations in under-resourced areas of the world.
Since 2015, ROW has made grants to 29 partners in 14 countries.
GRANT HIGHLIGHTS: 6 EEG units to organizations in Armenia, India, Kenya, and the Republic of Georgia - Ongoing grants of branded-generic levetiracetam to 10 epilepsy programs in 7 countries - Emergency humanitarian medication aid for Syrian refugees in Jordan and for patients facing drug shortages in Venezuela - Psychiatry training grant (Nigeria) as we expand beyond epilepsy and its psychiatric comorbidities
We believe in "One World. One Standard." and envision a future when the best treatments will be available to all people, at all times, in all the world.
