                                      What: Square Pharmaceuticals Ltd. is the largest pharmaceutical company in Bangladesh. For the first time we decided to celebrate this day officially. But 26 March is the Independence Day of Bangladesh. For that reason we already celebrated the Purple Day on 25 March 2014. Basically we focused on doctor societies to celebrate this day, because people get primary treatment from them. So, they may involve to create awareness against EPILEPSY among general people. In Bangladesh, we (Square Pharma) took some initiatives to create a noise throughout the country to support epilepsy awareness. 1. Poster: We arranged 2 types of poster to support epilepsy among mass people. Theme of 1st poster is "1 in 10 people suffer from epilepsy in their life time. And, theme of 2nd poster is "In world, some great people also had epilepsy." 2. First Aid Seizure Pad: There are a lot of superstition regarding epilepsy. To give a breakthrough against those superstition, we arranged a first aid pad which is written in Bangla for patients and their relatives. Here, some DOs & DON'Ts are during seizures are written for patients. Doctor will provide one leaf of the pad with their prescription to the patients. 3. Purple Ribbon: To support epilepsy awareness, we provided a PURPLE RIBBON to the doctors of our country and encouraged them to wear that. We also shared the history Purple Day initiation to our doctors. Finally it was a fantastic and successful Purple Day celebrated in Bangladesh on behalf of Square Pharmaceuticals Ltd. And, the event initiator was me, mr. Aminul Islam, Product Executive, Product Management Department. Thank You

On Purple Day, people are invited to wear purple to show their support for those affected by epilepsy. There will be a strong campaign to put stickers with epilepsy on a few cars from the public transport for 2 weeks and for 2 weeks promoting at METROREX by 271 LCDs in the 43 subway stations. Also Autocobalcescu Company, Taxi Company and local public transport join as partners with ASPERO by applying to vehicles a purple flag with the message €EPILEPSY IS NOT A MONSTER.€

During the year we hold different events related to health education and promotion. Last year we organized a lecture for the students in the faculty but this year we want to go further and get the street population involved without forgetting our student community. So, for the Epilepsy World Day we are going to spread information through Facebook and Twitter publications and also we plan to make diffusion on the 26th of March on the street (in a crowded square in our city). A role play with truths and myths is prepared for the occasion. We would also be pleased to become an event for the Purple Day!

I was diagnosed with epilepsy 12 years ago and have been through a lot. I have recently had brain surgery this past December for my condition and have been rehabilitated on a level that I would have never expected. I am going to use this as well as my personal knowledge of epilepsy to help other obtain awareness and also to promote support compassion for those who are dealing with a disability. I have also planned to provide several handouts as well as purple ribbons and purple cupcakes! I plan to make this a very interactive and enjoyable presentation where anyone who attends will have something to take with them in order to understand a condition which is often misunderstood.
