Why “disorders of the brain” deserve at least equal attention as cardiovascular diseases and cancer

brain-femaleprofileG20 World Brain Map­ping and Ther­a­peu­tics Ini­tia­tive Part­ners with EU Human Brain Project (DD&D):

Accord­ing to the World Health Orga­ni­za­tion’s large-scale stud­ies, about a third of the adult world­wide pop­u­la­tion suf­fer from a men­tal dis­or­der such as depres­sion, anx­i­ety and schiz­o­phre­nia. If also tak­en togeth­er with neu­ro­log­i­cal dis­or­ders, such as demen­tia and stroke, these “dis­or­ders of the brain” account for 13% of the glob­al dis­ease bur­den. This sur­pass­es both car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­eases (5%) and can­cer (10%). Coun­tries with the high­est rate of bur­den includ­ed the USA, UK, Rus­sia, and Aus­tralia.

Aus­tralia is host­ing the Group of Twen­ty (G20) devel­op­ing nations in Novem­ber of this year in Bris­bane. This is a great oppor­tu­ni­ty for the heads of states of the G20 Nations to poten­tial­ly put the G20 World Brain Map­ping & Ther­a­peu­tics ini­tia­tive intro­duced by the SBMT and Brain Map­ping Foun­da­tion on their cur­rent and future agenda.”
