The World Stroke Organization is calling for stroke survivors and carers to provide input into a Global Bill of Rights for Stroke that will be released in 2014. The Bill of Rights is being developed because of the urgent need for:
- Increasing stroke awareness among the population and government
- A global policy on stroke prevention, improved health services and long term support for survivors
- Enhanced advocacy: putting a face to the fight against stroke in as much as other diseases have such as AIDS, cancer and tuberculosis.
- A call-to-action reference document for advocates
The Bill of Rights is being developed by stroke survivors and carers based on consultation with other stroke survivors and carers from around the world. It will consider survivor priorities in all aspects of care and recovery It is envisioned that this Bill of Rights will become a foundation document to support delivery of ongoing WSO and WSO member activities and to support global and local advocacy. The Global Bill of Rights will be launched at the 9th World Stroke Congress taking place in Istanbul, Turkey from 22-25 October later this year.
Ensuring involvement of patients and care givers from around the world will be critical to the successful development of the Stroke Bill of Rights. So, if you are a stroke survivor or a stroke care giver, we would be grateful if you could please take some time to complete the appropriate brief surveys below. Your feedback is very important to us and will help us in crafting a document that can truly reflect the needs of the stroke survivor and stroke care giver global community.
