"Those who fight Parkinson's with knowledge always find solutions" - Dr. Rana
All the undersigned individuals state that:
WE APPRECIATE global Parkinson’s Education Campaign by World Parkinson’s Program to promote awareness of Parkinson’s disease and reaching people with Parkinson’s and caregivers, healthcare professionals, workers, and organizations to improve the quality of life of those living with Parkinson’s.
WE UNDERSTAND the importance of the Global Parkinson’s Education Campaign initiated by World Parkinson’s Program on September 15, 2014 in all parts of the world.
WE REALIZE that the Global Parkinson’s Education Campaign is the international movement of World Parkinson’s Program to calling upon all institutions to help improve care of Parkinson’s patients in all parts of the world and in particular those with less resources.
WE CONSIDER Parkinson’s as one of the most debilitating and disabling neurodegenerative conditions, and that those afflicted with it face serious challenges in coping with it in their day to day lives. Parkinson’s is the cause of huge social and economic costs which may rise in future due to ageing populations.
WE BELIEVE that the education of patients and caregivers and healthcare workers will lead to the significant improvement in the management of Parkinson’s.
We therefore call upon health agencies, organizations, institutions and the United Nations system in all parts the world to:
Strongly encourage all physicians, healthcare institutions, organizations and workers to use Parkinson’s disease literature of World Parkinson’s Program in local languages to educate patients and caregivers to improve their understanding of Parkinson’s and the mission of world Parkinson’s Program.
Use special means to better understand the needs of people who live with Parkinson’s their family members and caregivers . Develop resources to improve treatments and access to comprehensive care of Parkinson’s patients.
Organize efforts and special resources in the underdeveloped countries, where the needs of people with Parkinson’s are often remain unmet due to lack of resources.
