We have created a website with easy to use information on 10 modifiable stroke risk factors which is available in six languages: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian.
Around 17 million strokes occur worldwide each year, despite compelling evidence that it is a largely preventable condition. Stroke shares risk factors with other cardiovascular diseases and with many other diseases. Addressing stroke risk factors requires both individual and society level interventions – addressing lifestyle and medical issues.
The aim of this website is to inform and inspire people to take individual interventions, such as giving up smoking or taking better control over their blood pressure and take an active role in preventing stroke.
