Neurological problems are major unrecognized public health problems. With paucity of trained manpower, the emphasis till date has been on delivery of services,more so in urban areas. Understanding the distribution and determinants of neurological disorders is very vital for planning delivery of services and to develop preventive care and rehabilitation programmes.
