WSO Advocacy Toolkit

The WSO Advocacy Toolkit is for individuals and organizations seeking to advance stroke policy, elevate the issue of stroke to improve stroke awareness, prevention, treatment and support by driving change through governments and institutions.

This toolkit will help you advocate effectively for improvements in the health system to address stroke (e.g. develop population based policies that will reduce stroke, ensure better access to evidence based stroke treatments, secure resources to develop stroke rehabilitation and support services) in your region.


After using the Advocacy Toolkit to complete your 9 Step Advocacy Plan please email it to to review and provide feedback.
