On World Stroke Day, the World Stroke Organisation is organising several events you might want to be involved in.

It isn’t too late to register for the WSO congress 28-29 October. Arlene Wilkie, our Director General, will be speaking on the 28th. Register: here

Join the World Stroke Day panel discussion at 3pm CET: No time to waste! Saving lives and reducing disability by accelerating worldwide access to acute stroke treatment.

Every minute from the onset of stroke to treatment contributes to a loss of brain function and increases the probability of long-term impairment, disability and death. For governments, every year that goes by without action ramps up the social and economic impact of stroke.

Improving outcomes requires effort on all front but improvements are possible, even in the most challenging circumstances. This event will bring together leaders from patient, policy and industry to discuss opportunities and challenges to save #Precioustime and deliver access to quality stroke care for all.

With panel moderator Rageh Omaar, ITV Global Health Correspondent, stroke survivor and Gold Medal Olympian, Michael Johnson and Sheila Martins World Stroke Organization President-elect, World Stroke Campaign and WHO, NCD expert Slim Slama.
