The role of SSOs

Stroke support organizations (SSOs) are non governmental organizations that globally drive better outcomes in stroke prevention, treatment and long term care. SSOs range in size, focus and membership. SSOs may be run solely by stroke survivors, by healthcare professionals or by a mixture of people with a professional or personal interest in stroke. Despite the differences, SSOs are united by one common goal: to reduce the negative impact of stroke on individuals, their families and wider society.
