The World Federation of Neurology today represents 117 professional societies in all parts of the world. The Federation’s aim is to improve human health worldwide by promoting prevention and the care of persons with disorders of the entire nervous system. Its stated mission, is to foster quality neurology and brain health worldwide, a goal it seeks to achieve by promoting global neurological education and training, with the emphasis placed firmly on under-resourced parts of the world, such as the developing nations of Africa where the need is so great. Provision of applied research grants continues to be a major activtiy of the WFN and perhaps it is one of the few international providers of such grants. Each member society of the WFN registers its own individual member neurologists with the organisation. The Federation publishes its own peer reviewed scientific journal – the Journal of the Neurological Sciences; issues its own on-line bi-monthly newsletter – World Neurology; maintains an active educational programme and website; and holds the major international meeting in the discipline, the biennial World Congress of Neurology.
