A research and education network to tackle the oldest affliction

Hichem used to be an epileptic, working as a blacksmith. To start with, he tried to conceal his illness from his employer. He took medication for over ten years until the day it stopped having any effect.  

This is the story of a young Tunisian who was able to banish the condition once and for all, and start to enjoy life once more, thanks to the Tunisian medical team who carried out the operation and the EUMEDCONNECT2 project being rolled out in several Mediterranean countries and enjoying European Commission funding of €4 million. The initiative is based on exchanges of information and scientific data between 700 institutions throughout North Africa and the Middle East and 4,000 research and education bodies in Europe.
