Neurology

The diagnosis and treatment of all categories of conditions, disease and disorders involving the central and peripheral nervous system are dealt by a branch of medicine called neurology. Neurology is basically concerned with the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system which consists of a complex, sophisticated system including its subdivisions, the autonomic nervous system and the somatic nervous system  that regulates and coordinates body activities. According to the University of California, San Francisco, the number of neurological disorder is heading more than 600, out of which most of the diseases treatment is still under limitations and research is still processing. The Global Burden of Disease study, along with the ongoing international collaborative project between WHO, the World Bank and the Harvard School of Public Health, has come up with the evidence that pinpoints neurological disorders are one of the greatest threats to public health. According to the UN report on neurology, 27 February 2007, nearly one in six of the world’s population, up to 1 billion people, suffer from neurological disorders, from Alzheimer and Parkinson disease, strokes, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy to migraine, brain injuries. By analyzing the Global statistics, it is seen that fifty million people suffer from epilepsy, sixty-two million people suffer from cerebrovascular disease, three hundred and twenty-six million people suffer from migraine, and twenty-four million of the population suffer from Alzheimer disease and other dementias.

According to the WHO report, in terms of the population covered, only one quarter has access to more than one neurologist per 100 000 population, which means median number of neurologists per 100 000 population is also much lower for low-income countries (0.03) compared with high-income countries (2.96).
