About World Parkinson's Day
World Parkinson's Day, held annually on the 11th April, is an opportunity for people with Parkinson's, scientists and supporters, fundraisers and families, carers and clinicians, to come together and tell the story of Parkinson's.
Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition. This means that it causes problems in the brain and gets worse over time. It's the fastest-growing neurological condition in the world.
