Overview of brain health
Brain Health is growing and an emerging concept that includes neurological development, plasticity, work, and maintenance of life. Good brain health is a condition in which every person can understand their skills. And improve their knowledge, emotional, psychological, and behavior to deal with the situation of life. Multiple mutual social and biological factors (including genealogies) play an important role in brain development and the health of the mind. These factors affect the ways to adopt tension and troubles, which our brain responds to make strategies for both promotion and prevention.
Conditions of brain health emerge in a lifetime. These are considered by normal brain development and the function of the brain. They result in Neuro-development and nervous conditions. For example, mental, developmental diseases, autism spectrum disorders, chicken, psychiatric, dementia, mental illness, headaches, multiple sculptures, Parkinson’s disease, neuron infection, brain tumor, painful injury, and nutritional deficit.
It can also appear as a nervous disorder. For these conditions require multi-purpose and intermediate cooperation for brain health and social care. It also focuses on promotions, prevention, treatment, maintenance, and maintenance with the overall focused approach and conditions. Moreover, the active engagement of people and their families are facing these conditions.
Burdens of brain health
The global burden of Neuro-development and neurological conditions is high. In developing countries, the burden on brain health is approximately 70%. Therefore, neurological conditions are major causes of disability and other major reasons for global mortality. These causes 9 million deaths every year.
In 2016, the four largest partners of neurological DALYs were stroke (42.2%) dementia (10.4%) migraine (16.3%), and meningitis (7.9%). And Epilepsy (5%) is the fifth contributor. Parkinson’s disease, which is due to the growing older population, is a fast-growing nervous disorder. Specifically, in Southeast Asia and Africa, pre-birth, newborn insecurity, and Neuro infections are especially important to the burden of nervous conditions in children. In 2016, 29.3 million YLDs were 13.3% development disabilities for all children’s brain health conditions under 5 years.
Despite the major burden of brain health conditions, only 28% of the developing countries have devoted policy for nervous diseases as compared to 64% more developed countries. The resources available for these conditions are inadequate in most countries and the difference between treatments for many Neuro-development and neurological are unacceptable. For example, in poor and developing countries, there are only three adult neurologists for every 10 million people. On the contrary, 4.75 adult neurologists are available for 100,000 people in high-income countries. There are fewer resources to diagnose and care for Neuro-development and neurological situations.
WHO response of brain health
WHO Neurology Atlas as a large, global WHO Neurology Atlas has progressed in bringing the real burden of nervous disorders of brain health in public awareness. Therefore, being a part of the 11th revision of the IDC (International Classification of Diseases), the chapter on the nervous system has seen large changes. These changes are in the organization and material according to progress in modern clinical practice and neurological science.
On February 2020, the 146th Executive Board has requested the WHO to increase the scope of their technical report on epilepsy. They want to add a new section on the harmony with the burden of epilepsy and other neurological nervous diseases.
According to the current mandate for the Universal Health Coverage and the SDG 2030 agenda and WHOs brain health conditions, dementia, autism spectrum disorders, and epilepsy. The WHOs brain health works more and focused on promoting growth to be a lifetime. The main activities include:
- Service delivery, strengthening policies, Health Information Systems, and technology (including artificial intelligence, E-Health, and large data). Research and innovation, especially in poor and developing countries.
- By providing technical support about the formation of brain health conditions focused on poor and developing countries. This also focuses on promotion, prevention, treatment, maintenance, and maintenance.
- Globally increasing investment and inter-agency cooperation as well as promoting the involvement of different features and fields.
