On September 27th, the Third UN High-Level Meeting on NCDs (UN HLM) will take place. This will be the first opportunity to profile and review action on stroke and NCDs within the context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The HLM is an important rallying point to focus the attention of Heads of State and Government on the urgent need to address stroke as a development and political priority. In advance of this meeting, we have prepared a template letter for you to send to your head of state. We would be grateful if you could complete this template with the following information:

a. Name of your country’s Head of State and Minister of Finance, Minister of Development, Minister of Foreign Affairs (copy to Minister of Health)

bStatistics or relevant information about the national/local burden of stroke and prevalence of stroke risk factors including hypertension, tobacco consumption, obesity or insufficient physical activity.

Please keep us informed of your activities and send a copy of your letter to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  for our records. A WSO leadership team will attend the event on behalf of our members and we will be providing stroke specific messaging as part of the NCD Alliance #EnoughNCDs campaign. We count on your support and look forward to hearing from you very soon.
