The International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE), founded in 1909, is an organisation of more than 100 national chapters. Its primary goals are:
- To advance and disseminate knowledge about epilepsy
- To promote initiatives to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy
- To promote epilepsy research, education and training
ILAE works in collaboration with national chapters and operates primarily through its topic-oriented and regional commissions and task forces. Through the efforts of its members, all volunteers, ILAE has an important influence on epilepsy policy across the world. It organizes regional and international congresses and courses, and publishes the premier epilepsy journal, Epilepsia, as well as Epileptic Disorders, a journal dedicated to epilepsy education.
