World Stroke Day (WSD) was held on 29th October 2015 across 190 countries around the world, with the World Stroke Campaign (WSC) reaching more people in 2015 than ever before with 12.9 billion opportunities to read about stroke online.
The campaign theme focused on raising awareness of stroke prevention and risk among women using the tagline “I am Woman – stroke affects me, stroke affects everyone”
The year-round stroke campaign aims to intensify global awareness on the fight against stroke.
The Campaign succeeded in providing knowledge and enhancing discussion on women and stroke to international audiences.
Thank you to our supporters for helping WSO in its mission to reduce the global burden of stroke through prevention, treatment and long-term care.
