One in four of us will have a stroke in our lifetime. And 90% of those strokes could be prevented by addressing a small number of risk factors including high blood pressure (hypertension), irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation), smoking, diet and exercise. This year we are mobilizing the global stroke community to raise awareness and drive action on stroke prevention. Get involved and show that together we can be #GreaterThan stroke.
90% of strokes are associated with 10 risk factors we can all do something about.
Our campaign materials provide you with everything you need to raise awareness of stroke on Oct 29th, World Stroke Day.
Our campaign guide, social media posts, posters, videos are translated into several global languages and provide everything you need to share our World Stroke Day message that prevention is #GreaterThan stroke.
