The 2021 World Stroke Congress and World Stroke Day events were recently completed. The congress was a highly successful virtual meeting with over 2000 registrants. The results of several large clinical trials were presented along with many interesting and enlightening lectures. The plenary sessions also contained a large number of important presentations about many aspects of stroke research and patient care. The teaching courses provided educational material for all involved with stroke. The material presented at the congress will be available online for 90 days so it is not too late to register and access the content. World Stroke Day has a key role in raising visibility and knowledge about stroke in many countries. I would like to thank all of the people who contributed to the success of these two important endeavors. I look forward to an in person or hybrid World Stroke Congress to be held in Singapore next October.
Achieving our vision of a life free from stroke is a task that WSO cannot achieve alone. We are committed to building our partnerships at the global, regional and national level to scale up and deliver improvements in prevention, treatment and support to reduce the burden of stroke.
