Stroke Care International

10/29/2013
 
Stroke Care International marked The World Stroke Day On The 29th of October 2013 in Nigeria with a Massive Stroke Awareness and Care Campaign Tagged "Because We Care"...The event which started with a Road-Walk covered the entire 20 Local Government Areas(LGAs) as well as the 37 Local community Development Agencies (LCDAs) Of Lagos State (The Commercial City of Nigeria). The high point of the Campaign was the Convergence of Stroke Care international Campaign Members (which included Medical Personnel, physiotherapists, Nurses, Students, Volunteers etc.) at the prestigious Ikeja City Mall, Lagos where Free Medical Services such as Free BP and Blood Sugar Test etc. by our Standby Medical Personnel were carried out. Free and Consultations was also carried out for High risk Stroke Individuals. The event/campaign had a very large Media Coverage which included Radios and Television, Interviews on Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) Morning Ride, AM Express and 102.7Naija FM “Speak with the Professionals”. Publications on the Event were also reported across Major Daily Newspapers covering the lengths and breadths of Nigeria such as The Daily Newswatch Newspaper, Punch, The Nations Newspaper, Vanguard as well as The Guardian Newspapers. Study suggests that managing stroke constitutes a huge direct cost burden unaffordable by an average Nigerian stroke sufferer. The implication is that lack of means for rehabilitative care may result in disability adjusted life years which further compounds burdens in terms of indirect cost on the sufferers’ and care givers’ productivity. It is therefore recommended that awareness of this disorder is created by policy makers and implementers where it does not exist and increased where it does with health promotion and preventive measures. In view of this therefore, our motivation at Stroke Care International is the fact that there are fewer than 100 neurologists to care for a population estimated to be over 150 million, a ratio of 1:1.5 million. The burden on neurologists is enormous. It is therefore important to improve services for the care of patients with risk factors that could cause stroke such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus, heart disease and peripheral vascular disease as these would lessen the enormous burden on the meager number of neurologists if these patients eventually develop a stroke. Our vision at Stroke Care International is to see a Country (Nigeria) with fewer Stroke victims. We plan to do this by setting up Stroke Care support groups in major states of Nigeria. The Aims and Objectives of the support groups are: • Promote a positive outlook to rehabilitation; • Encourage survivors and their families to create realistic expectations of self-care; • Provide a supportive environment that helps members to accept their changed life; • Provide information on stroke, dispel myths around stroke and where possible provide professional guidance; • Allow members to share their experiences and coping strategies with others; • Provide a simple, informal format to the meetings; • Provide a mix of physical, mental and emotional stimulation that fosters adaptation. • Involve state Governments, professional bodies and others in the knowledge and stroke awareness

Stroke Action Nigeria

11/23/2013
 
For the first time in Nigeria since its independence in October 1960, a national stroke campaign was declared by Stroke Action Nigeria in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH). Stroke Action Nigeria, a stroke support organisation incorporated in July 2012, undertook strategic advocacy by lobbing the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) to collaborate in raising awareness about strokes and undertaking activities to mitigate strokes in Nigeria. Up to 195,000 Nigerians suffer a stroke annually and 60% die within three months. The FMOH signed a memorandum of understanding with Stroke Action Nigeria to: - undertake a national power to stop strokes campaign - establish a stroke reference group to develop and implement a national stroke strategy and a stroke register for Nigeria - pilot a life after stroke centre in Abuja FCT. In October 2013, a month long Power to Stop Strokes campaign was declared in the country with the President, Mr Goodluck Jonathan flagging off the campaign with an event requesting all Nigerians to undertake cardiovascular risk assessment. Other activities organised by Stroke Action Nigeria to raise awareness of strokes across many states include: - walk and run against strokes activity - power to stop strokes church service - stroke assembly conference on World Stroke Day The Honourable Minister of Health, Professor C O Onyebuchi Chukwu was a guest at the Power service at the Holy Trinity cathedral Maitama Abuja FCT. He was also a keynote speaker at the Stroke Assembly conference held at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel. Campaign was highly publicised in the media (Television, Radio, Newspapers) and millions of Nigerians were made aware of the need to have knowledge of their stroke risk factors and to prevent strokes.
