Abstract

Using an indirect assessment technique we assessed the epilepsy treatment gap (ETG) in Madagascar. We estimate the ETG in Madagascar to be 92%. However, given the sociological, economic and sanitary conditions of the country, it is likely that the true ETG is even higher than our estimate. Our study also documents the lack of access to treatment for patients in this developing country. The indirect method could be used to assess the treatment gaps of other chronic medical conditions
