What we do

We know that strokes will be one of Nepal’s main health burden in the coming years. 

But we also know, that early treatment of stroke can save healthy years of life

And we know, that strokes are a preventable disease!

To reduce the burden of stroke in Nepal, the project is built on four pillars: 

Quality improvement

Establishment of nationwide stroke ready hospitals by building stroke teams and training health care personnel, e.g. face-to-face workshops, webinars, nursing conferences

Implementation of standardized treatment protocols

Following the Continuum of Stroke Care: Acute and post-acute stroke care, secondary prevention and rehabilitation

Development of a Hub and Spoke-Model of referral network

Reinforcing autonomy by offering train-the-trainer workshops

Establishment of readily available treatment options at international standards
