National Neuroscience Institute (NNI) cares for close to 80% of the nation's patients for conditions affecting the brain, spine, nerves and muscles. These conditions change people's lives forever. Some patients lose control of their body functions. Others suffer memory loss. Eventually, many lose both.
The World Health Organisation predicts that by 2040, neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia and Parkinson's disease will overtake cancer to become the second leading cause of death after cardiovascular disease.* We need your help to stop these diseases from shattering more lives.
Together, we can do more by enhancing care treatments and supporting patients in financial need, accelerating medical research discoveries, advancing medical training for healthcare professionals and other unmet needs - to offer our patients hope in their fight to live.
