Thank You for World Stroke Day 2017

THANK YOU for an incredible World Stroke Day 2017!

While the dust is still settling from World Stroke Day 2017 we would like to say a HUGE thank you to all of our member organisations, supporters and partners who helped us to show why we should all take stroke prevention seriously!

Some initial numbers from the day show that we have achieved some campaign records this year:

  • 189 World Stroke Day events registered in 58 countries
  • Our Thunderclap achieved a twitter reach of 742K, this figure doesn't include all the other #WorldStrokeDay conversations which took place on and around the 29th.
  • Video views on Facebook are standing at 17K compared to total of 2K last year. YouTube views added 1,634.
  • Blogs posted on the WSO platform with the 'prevention' tag have had over 17,500 views.

We are still pulling together the data and doing the total media analysis - we will also be asking our members and partners to share their campaign evaluations- but the initial indicators are that this year has taken us to a new level of reach and engagement.  

Of course, the numbers only tell part of the story. For us, the best indicators of World Stroke Day success were the individual stories and conversations on the streets, in community halls, in the media and on social media around the globe. We are sincerely grateful to everyone who took the time to organise and participate in events and in particular to those who shared their very personal stories and the profound reasons that we all have to prevent stroke. 

We are also grateful for the support and engagement of our colleagues across the Non-Communicable Disease community who shared our messages to new audiences and helped us to position stroke prevention squarely on the health and development agenda.
