BRIDGE is establishing a platform from which to perform large definitive studies and clinical trials of innovative epilepsy care systems and therapies by (a) quantifying and mapping the childhood epilepsy treatment gap in Kano, Nigeria; (b) training, developing, and piloting task-shifted to Community Health Extension Workers (CHEWs) to improve epilepsy care access; and, (c) developing and piloting innovative epilepsy care paradigms designed for low-resource environments with limited EEG access.
