World Stroke Day 2014 – National Campaign in Brazil
The World Stroke Day 2014 in Brazil was coordinated by Sheila Martins and organized by the Brazilian Stroke Society, Brazilian Academy of Neurology, Brazilian Stroke Network, Brazilian Stroke Association and Ministry of Health of Brazil. The 1 week campaign (October 24 to November 02) brought together health professionals, students, health authorities, stroke support organizations, journalists, advertising and other professionals with actions in 71 Brazilian cities, to make the population aware about stroke, the leading cause of death and disability in Brazil. Standard T-shirts, the stroke solidarity String and banners were used throughout the country.

The main actions in 2014:

  • The Launch of the Global Stroke Bill of Rights in Brasília, October 22 together with the launch in Istambul, with other events around the country during the campaign.

  • Running Against stroke: we invited runners and common people around the country to run against stroke and put their kilometers and trajectory on the facebook, twitter or Instagram #correndocontraoavc (that means #runningagainststroke): – to promote health and trying to achieve 10.000 kilometers run against stroke. We started in October 01st and we got over 4300 km against stroke. In the same way, we promoted Marathons around the country (#runningagainststrokePortoAlegre, #runningagainststrokeRibeirãoPreto, etc) with Campaign T-shirts, each runner won a Stroke Solidarity String and the Prize has the campaign symbol. We expected to have more than 2000 runners around the country.

  • Stroke Risk Evaluation: we had campaigns in Parks, beaches, hospitals, shopping malls with information to the population about stroke with videos, World stroke campaign brochures distribution, lectures and media coverage. During this campaigns in 35 cities we evaluated online the risk of stroke in each person, giving the results and the information about how to prevent stroke depending on the specific risk. This information is collected in a national databank.
