Abstract: This is one of the largest community-based studies of the prevalence of epilepsy in adults conducted in sub-Saharan Africa to date. We identified a lower prevalence than has previously been described in this region. The high proportion of focal onset seizures points to a large burden of acquired, and possibly preventable, epilepsy in this population. A treatment gap of 68.4% confirms that interventions to raise awareness of the treatable nature of epilepsy are warranted in this and similar populations.
