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!

The Nepal Stroke Project aims to reduce the burden of disease from stroke in Nepal. And this will be achieved by a stepwise enhancement of stroke care according to the World Stroke Organization’s Global Stroke Guidelines and Action Plan along the Continuum of Stroke Care-  

from Stroke Prevention to Stroke Recognition, from Acute Stroke Treatment to Rehabilitation. 

The project is based on four pillars: 

 

Quality improvement

Establishment of nationwide stroke ready hospitals by training of health personnel

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

 

Stroke Awareness

Public education campaigns on modifiable risk factors of strokes

Raising awareness about stroke symptoms (BE-FAST) and help-seeking behavior

Quality monitoring
