Global Advocacy Programs

National Programs

Many nations across the globe have neuroscience-related advocacy programs.

SfN works with national organizations to expand their advocacy efforts. For example, SfN provided support to the Canadian Association for Neuroscience in its successful multi-organizational effort to establish a brain research fund in Canada, an effort that led to $100 million in Canadian government funding devoted to brain research. SfN has also worked to expand advocacy efforts in Mexico through Sociedad Mexicana de Neurociencias y Neurobiologia and Sociedad Mexicana de Ciencias Fisiológicas.
