Stroke specialists, stroke survivors, neurologists, leading medical professionals and advocates came together to launch the Global Stroke Bill of Rights at the opening ceremony of the 9th World Stroke Congress in Istanbul.

It was a magical moment as the Global Stroke Bill of Rights was read live at the conference opening ceremony by stoke survivors and carers Anthony Quek, George Scola, and Magda and Tatiana Perez.

The Bill of Rights has been developed to ensure that every person affected by stroke has access to all elements of appropriate stroke care, to optimise their best chance of survival and recovery.

Delivered in 10 different languages, the Bill was the culmination of more than 12 months work, bringing together survivors and caregivers from across the world. Magda Perez, Tatiana Perez, George Scola, Anthony Quek, Kathleen Bourque, Shefali Chopra, Kjetil Gaarder, John Damrow led its development and must be congratulated on capturing the state of stroke across the globe and its needs for the future.

This group was supported in the Bills’s development by thoughsands of survivors and caregivers from different countries, cultures and languages who completed surveys to understand if there were differences in parts of the world. Their responses demonstrated what is considered to be important in stroke recovery is consistent regardless of where people affected by stroke live.

Global Bill of Rights

[/one_half_last]

The Bill of Rights was created because of the urgent need for:

  • Increased stroke awareness among the population and government;
  • A global policy on stroke prevention; and
  • Improved health services and long term support for survivors.

It identifies the aspects of care that were important for all stroke survivors and caregivers from across the world. Download the Global Stroke Bill of Rights and read the media release here.

The WSO and its partners across the world are now calling on governments, ministries of health and healthcare systems to rise to this challenge and ensure that the Bill of Rights is fully supported and implemented.
