All the delegations invited, sent representatives. Basically, we had representatives from the delegations of Public Health and of Social Affairs. Their participation at the walk was made all the more valuable by the presentations they made on both epilepsy as a neurological disorder and the need to change social attitudes towards those suffering/affected from/by the condition.
