“Those who fight Parkinson's with knowledge always find solutions- Dr.Rana," Founder, World Parkinson’s Program

The number of persons diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD) is expected to double worldwide by 2030, many persons living with Parkinson’s disease around the world cannot afford:

  • Consultation with a neurologist or,
  • Medications for their treatment,
  • An electric tooth brush and other basic healthcare supplies,
  • A walker, wheelchair or cane, to reduce fall risk, and
  • Lack access to educational literature about Parkinson’s and hence are without necessary information about their disease.

The World Parkinson’s Program  has a mission to respond to some of these basic needs, and its founder, Dr. Abdul Qayyum Rana is passionate about providing education and services globally.  Dr. Rana is a Canadian neurologist specializing in the field of Parkinson's disease and Movement disorders. He is currently the Director of Parkinson's Clinic of Eastern Toronto and Movement Disorders Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He is the founding editor-in-chief of the Journal of Parkinsonism and Restless Legs Syndrome, and he has published extensively in the field of Neurology. He is founder of World Parkinson's Program, a foundation dedicated to improving the quality of life of persons with Parkinson’s and their carepartners by providing education and other supportive services, at a global level. http://www.pdprogram.org/
