Concept One: “1 in 6” photo album
The photo tear represents the sixth person who has had stroke, i.e., “ 1 in 6” and hence is no longer in the picture. Family and friendships are torn apart because of stroke. Relationships are destroyed and shattered... only memories remain.
Concept Two: “1 in 6” faded image
The faded image of a face signifies the occurrence of stroke. An important objective of the campaign is to put a “face” to stroke. Behind the “1 in 6” public health statistic are people who at one time, were someone’s sister, brother, wife, husband, daughter, son, partner, mother, father… friend. They did exist and were loved.

2008 World Stroke Day Resources
The theme for the World Stroke Day 2008 was “Little strokes, big trouble”.
“Silent” strokes are by far the most common type of strokes. Recent studies have clearly demonstrated the importance of “silent” stroke as determinants for overt stroke, other vascular events, cognitive decline and dementia. The early prevention of subclinical and clinical vascular disease in the brain is essential and of major concern for the general health of the population.
