In the past 21 years, over 21,000 people with epilepsy have died suddenly and died too young                                                                     

What is Prevent21?
Launched in November 2017, SUDEP Action’s Prevent21 campaign shines a light on this shocking disaster bringing it out of the shadows and to the public’s attention.


"Every one of the 21 people who died this week is worth fighting for. Helping people take action to save lives now, and in the future – is part of our DNA. Join us in this life- saving campaign." 
Jane Hanna OBE, SUDEP Action CEO


We helped 14,000 people last year.
With YOUR help, we can speed up what needs to happen over the next two years of this campaign - helping even more people and saving future lives.

The vision for the Prevent21 campaign is:
