A stroke is treatable! And organized stroke care systems can reduce stroke mortality and morbidity by up to 30%. Timely administration of blood-thinning therapy increases the chance of a positive outcome by a further 30%. And mechanical thrombectomy in case of stroke by a large-vessel-occlusion will increase the chance of a favorable outcome by 50%. And not to forget the positive impact of multidisciplinary stroke care and early rehabilitation. The World Stroke Organization has published a clear set of policy priorities for prevention, treatment and post-stroke care .
We highly appreciate the endeavor of the political stakeholders in Nepal to put stroke care as a relevant topic on their agenda.
Together we will develop solutions for cost-effective stroke care for everyone in Nepal. And we will put all our efforts in bringing stroke care to everyone in Nepal!
Thanks to the WHO and the Nepal Stroke Association for taking the initiative and strengthening the collaboration between all political and medical stakeholders in Nepal and worldwide!
