Neurological Excellence. Worldwide.

GlobalNeurology® provides expertise and leadership in developing or improving sustainable evidence-based neurological care through collaborative partnerships that transcend geographical borders.

Our practice is not for every client. Many universities and private organizations have excellent global health programs that may meet your needs. Clients seek us out because we are independent and neutral, focus exclusively on neuroscience (neurology, neurosurgery, neuroethics), and offer unsurpassed expertise while adhering to impeccable ethical standards. We will act in your best interest, in a timely fashion, without any administrative or bureaucratic hindrance.

Shaping the future of global neurology and neurosurgery.

The global burden of disease profile is rapidly changing. Diseases typically considered endemic to sub-Saharan Africa will increasingly surface in developed countries, and emerging diseases are likely to cause serious outbreaks that may impact any region of the world. Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) – especially neurological disorders such as stroke, epilepsy, dementia, neuropathy – are emerging as the major cause of morbidity and mortality, creating a double burden in the many developing countries that remain plagued by infectious or communicable diseases. These NCDs have a particularly high rate of morbidity, afflicting millions of people, resulting in poor cognition and physical impairment, rendering them unable to reach their full potential, with lost income and fewer opportunities, leading to increased vulnerability, marginalization and exclusion, while suffering overwhelming medical and social needs. The World Health Organization openly declared these neurological disorders "one of the greatest threats to public health,” (WHO, Neurological Disorders: Public Health Challenges), and the United Nations set a 2030 target of reducing by one-third premature mortality from NCDs by prevention and treatment. (Sustainable Development Goal 3.4). The failure to effectively address these conditions will exacerbate poverty, leading to profound effects on the economic, political and social stability of developing countries, especially the least developed nations. (Johnston, UN E/CN.5/2017/NGO/19).

The traditional paradigm of the 'North' solving these health problems is no longer relevant. Today, an increasingly interconnected population combined with the dynamic nature of disease patterns, including our collective exposure to emerging illnesses and related transnational threats, creates a global risk stretching from the heart of Africa to the furthest corners of New Zealand, and mandates a coordinated global approach to improving capacity and resources in health systems, especially in the developing nations.

GlobalNeurology® is committed to capacity building through collaborative partnerships and alliances with public, private, non-governmental and international organizations to ethically promote sustainable growth of global healthcare while protecting inherently vulnerable populations. Our goal is to advance the highest standards of neurological patient care, physician training and medical research.
