As the CoVID-19 pandemic spreads across Europe and the world, in response the European Academy of Neurology is launching EANcore CoVID-19. This resource aims to help neurologists in Europe and beyond prepare for and manage the challenges this global crisis is bringing. In several European countries, this crisis has already stressed health care systems to their limits, whereas in others preparations are ongoing and the wave of infected patients is building. To support neurologists, EANcore CoVID-19 will provide up-to-date information on the pandemic, collate emerging data on neurological complications, publish reports from front-line doctors, the latest research, breaking news, and more, all to access in just one place. EANcore CoVID-19 is accessible for members and non-members of EAN to support the fight against the greatest global health care challenge of the last century.
