EAN 2023 | The global economic impact of brain health disorders

Harris Eyre, MD, PhD, Baker Institute for Public Policy, Rice University, Houston, TX, discusses the global socio-economic impact of brain health disorders. These disorders encompass a wide range of mental and neurological conditions, affecting not only individuals but also representing a substantial economic burden. Brain health disorders have a significant negative effect on both work productivity and social contributions, such as parenting, volunteering, and caregiving. Dr. Eyre utilizes data sources like the IHME’s brain health atlas to highlight the extensive economic repercussions, amounting to trillions of dollars on a global scale. This emphasizes the need for increased attention from politicians and policymakers to address brain health disorders and bring about large-scale changes. This interview took place at the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) 2023 Congress in Budapest, Hungary.
