Prevention

Facilitating conscious efforts in recognition and diagnosis

The prevention program aims at conducting a widespread awareness campaign. We endeavour to find ways and methods to continuously inform the public concerning signs and symptons, treatment and life skills in hopes of increasing awareness and diagnoses.

The foundation distributes informational materials to schools and local communities in hopes to facilitate early recognition and symptoms.
