Identifying gaps, challenges and opportunities in stroke care and prevention



The World Stroke Organization, in partnership with WHO has launched a survey of stroke clinicians public health specialists and and Ministries of Health in Low- and Middle-Income Countries.

The online survey aims to determine levels of current capacity for delivering key elements of stroke care and prevention to the population served in different countries.

The research, which is anticipated will be published in The Lancet in the second half of 2018, is intended to provide practical recommendations for stroke service improvements. Based on the information provided, we will be able to determine the level of stroke services - categorised as minimal, essential or advanced at national and regional level and potentially help identify areas for development and to support strategies for improvement. These categories and the standards for each are based on the World Stroke Organization's Global Guidelines for Quality Stroke Care.

Invitations to participate in the survey have been circulated by the World Stroke Organisation. For information about who has been contacted to complete surveys in your country/region, to request an invitation or for support in completing a survey please contact the Project Manager, Rohit Bhattacharjee.

WSO is grateful for the time and attention dedicated to completing the survey and survey participants will have an opportunity to provide input to the publication, which will be submitted to the Lancet Neurology in the second half of 2018.
