Stroke Care International

This is our second event and already we have published articles in newspapers about stroke/TIA. This will be followed by, TV live appearance, Radio live phone in talk show, Road show and finally know your blood pressure campaign.

Stroke care International was started in June 2014 by Gloria Ekeng, who having worked in the United Kingdom as a Clinical Nurse Specialist for stroke/TIA, saw the need to take stroke awareness to that part of Africa, where there is no standard, policies or procedures on stroke care, management and rehabilitation, Our first outing was very successful, well publicized and well attended. We hope to achieve more this year as we are working with the Lagos State Government and other related NGO's.we are also targeting women's group empowerment this year to spread the message of stroke awareness. We hope to reach all 36 states in Nigeria through our live TV programme. Our stroke support group will be launched officially on the 7th of November 2014,during our fund raising event, so far we have supported about 100 families through our stroke programme, giving information that was non existent. We have also reached out to professionals i.e. Doctors, retraining them on stroke management. Our long term plan is to establish the first Stroke Unit in Nigeria with facilities to deal with stroke emergency.

As part of the activities for the 2014 Power to Stop Strokes Campaign, Stroke Action Nigeria plans to host its third stakeholder conference the Nigeria Stroke Assembly, which is a strategic advocacy event held annually on World Stroke Day 29th October in Abuja FCT.

The Stroke Assembly aims to promote partnership working with agencies, professional associations, survivors, their carers, health and social care professionals and NGOs representing people with disabilities, to discuss the state of Nigeria stroke services, promote good practice in stroke care, and influence government policy decisions about stroke services development in the country.

Speaking at the 2013 Stroke Assembly the Honourable Minister of Health Prof C O Onyebuchi Chukwu stated that:

“Stroke remains a major cause of neurological admissions in Nigeria with a high mortality rate of 40-50 per cent within the first three months of diagnosis. He added that the economic loss to the country from stroke, heart disease and diabetes alone, as estimated by the WHO in 2005, was $400 million”.

This year delegates will focus on implementation strategy for the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) and Stroke Action Nigeria on collaboration is stroke care delivery in Nigeria.
