Traumatic brain injury (TBI) was referred to as silent epidemic, neglected epidemic, and public health crisis by the World Health Organization due to its growing incidence and global public health, social, and economic burden. Despite the massive technological progress, no definitive treatment was found to cure TBI medically.The available evidence-based protocols are primarily directed toward stabilizing the patient and preventing secondary brain injuries, and their effectiveness has been validated in in high-income countries, but they may not be applicable to low and middle-income countries due to the lack of the appropriate infrastructure and limited human resources. Therefore, discrepancies are predicted between centers in high, low and middle-income countries and further studies are needed to asses the global managment of TBI.
