I am the program developer at 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 and psychiatric drugs to hospitals, clinics and patient organizations in under-resourced areas of the world.
Since 2015, ROW has collaborated with 35 partners in 19 countries.
GRANT HIGHLIGHTS: 6 EEG units to organizations in Armenia, India, Kenya, and the Republic of Georgia - Ongoing grants of branded-generic levetiracetam and lamotrigine to 15 epilepsy and psychiatry programs in 11 countries - Emergency humanitarian medication aid for Syrian hospitals 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.
