World Stroke Day 2015 Events

I am woman: Stroke affects me

We thank you for your support to make World Stroke Day - October 29th 2015 - another highpoint in the campaign to reduce the global burden of stroke.

Our campaign focus in 2015 was on women and stroke. On this page you can see how countries and communities around the world are using World Stroke Day to reach out to women to raise awareness of stroke prevention and risk.

If you want to be part of a local event for 2016, or to organize something in your community please use the contact details provided for listed events, or contact your local WSO member stroke organization - ask them how you can help.
