Treatment for Parkinson's patients in Bangladesh

$5,000 of $60,000 goal

PARKINSON'S DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE.

ABOUT 10 MILLION PEOPLE GLOBALLY LIVE WITH PARKINSON'S DISEASE...
but in countries with restricted economies that are densely populated, neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's, are grossly under-treated. 

Bangladesh has a population of 167 million people, and yet neurosurgical management of late stage Parkinson’s disease does not exist. Few people that can afford to seek out treatment options, go abroad at a high expense, exclusively for deep brain stimulation or DBS. 

DBS is not the answer in a country where the average income is $1,300 annually.  However, the long established technique of precise lesioning is affordable. This treatment has the potential to restore significant quality of life to a vast number of patients who would otherwise remain untreated.
 
In honor of #BrainWeek, HBSF is raising funds to donate a lesion generator along with equipment to make treatment possible and a permanent service in the region. Our very own Senior Fellow, Dr. Tipu Aziz and colleague Dr. Zahid Raihan, will be facilitating the first round of surgeries already scheduled. 


BUT WE NEED YOU TO HELP US REACH OUR GOAL OF $60,000
Thank you for your support! 

* Donations will be used exclusively to purchase medical equipment and cover shipment costs.
