Swedish National Stroke Campaign

10/29/2013 Plans for WSD 2013 in Sweden The National stroke campaign in Sweden is performing a nationwide tour for a whole week around World Stroke Day. Starting on Monday the 28th of October, one of the most famous comedians of Sweden, Måns Nilsson, will travel around the country, testing the people s knowledge about FAST (AKUT in Swedish). The tour is one of the last activities of the National Stroke Campaign, which started in October 2011 and will finish at the end of 2013. The National Stroke Campaign in Sweden has had its focus on teaching people the symptoms of stroke - via the Swedish translation of FAST (AKUT) - and the idea with the tour is to now test the Swedish people. Måns Nilsson will interview people on the street, and the material will be put together for short movies on Youtube. Movies can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/user/Strokekampanjen?feature=watch On World Stroke Day Måns Nilsson will be on national radio, talking about World Stroke Day and his tour around Sweden.

Application for World Stroke Day Award 2013 The National Stroke Campaign in Sweden is an information campaign unparalleled anywhere in the world and World Stroke Day has played a key role in the campaign. All major periods of activity in the campaign have been linked to World Stroke Day and large efforts have been made in conjunction with the day itself. Thanks to the campaign, World Stroke Day has become well known in Sweden. The campaign has been unique in view of the large national effort that has been made, the length and scope of the campaign, the number of initiatives taken and the wide range of channels used. In addition, the campaign has been followed up with extensive surveys of recognition, message understanding, awareness among the population, effects in the healthcare system and economic benefit. The results have been fantastic. The campaign has saved SEK 85 million in public costs, but the most important result is the fact that so many stroke victims now receive treatment in time. This is thanks to the people around them, who now recognize the symptoms and know to call 112 straight away. Referring to the above, the National Stroke Campaign hereby applies for the World Stroke Day Award 2013. Application and all appendices has been sent by e-mail to Jose Julio Divino at the World Stroke Campaign.
