World Stroke Day

World Stroke Day

When someone has a stroke, every second matters. Minutes can save lives.

World Stroke Day was created to bring awareness about the seriousness of this disease to people around the globe.

According to statistics, stroke is responsible for 1 out 6 deaths from cardiovascular problems. Stroke is the leading cause of long-term, serious disability. Stroke is preventable and can be treated. This should not be viewed as bad news. It should encourage people to take better care of their health.

This is what World Stroke Day aims to do.

World Stroke Day was established in 2006 by The World Stroke Organization. It is an annual event that focuses on education, testing, and other initiatives to reduce the devastating effects of strokes on people around the world.

The World Stroke Organization (WSO) is an all-year campaign that coordinates policy, advocacy and outreach to continue supporting stroke prevention and care.

Each year, World Stroke Day themes change. Some of the most popular past themes were: Strokes Are Treatable, Stroke, What Can I Do? and Because I Care.

These ideas will help you get connected to World Stroke Day and increase awareness.

When it comes to stroke, quick action is important. Research has shown that patients who are treated quickly after the onset symptoms occur are less likely to suffer from disability in the next three months.

These signs could indicate stroke warning signs:

These symptoms should be reported immediately to the emergency number and you will be taken to the hospital in 60 minutes.
