BackgroundTeleEEGĀ®

TeleEEGĀ® is a charity registered in England and Wales (1168877). Hospital clinics enabled to date by TeleEEG are located in Bolivia, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ecuador, eSwatini, Ethiopia, Gambia, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, India, Iraq, Kenya, Lesotho, Mali, Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, The Gambia, Uganda, Ukraine, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Next to be enabled are Dominican Republic and Dominica.

TeleEEG is arguably among the best value-for-donation charities in the world, having leveraged Ā£180,000 in donations into over Ā£2 million worth of epilepsy aid over 10 years.

It is also, surely, one of the most efficient with routine case reporting taking on average just 3.5 days against a target of 5 days, and urgent cases with a target of 24 hours being reported in under 7 hours (at time of publishing for year to date 2023). 

This would not be possible without the virtual team of volunteer Doctors who deliver the EEG remote reporting service overseas, and the TeleEEGĀ® system of processes and technology that enables this to be delivered.
