President Marie Louise Coleiro Preca said today that she always believed in full inclusivity of all people in society, but there are still instances when groups of people are left out because of reasons such as illnesses and conditions.

This happens, she said when addressing a conference on epilepsy organised by Caritas, because of lack of information.

There is a need for more information to be provided and be made available about epilepsy, and this would lead to less discrimination in workplaces. Employers must understand that people who suffer from the condition can contribute their part in society, she said.
