Worldwide, it is estimated that a baby is diagnosed with infantile spasms (IS) every 12 minutes

From December 1 to 7, 2018, a coalition of organizations will mark the fourth annual Infantile Spasms Awareness Week (ISAW). The goal of ISAW is to increase awareness and understanding of infantile spasms through the distribution of objective educational materials to providers, caregivers, and the public; the announcement of new and useful research and support initiatives; and the declaration to patients and caregivers that help is available, and hope exists.
