Recognising and sharing best practice in stroke awareness

World Stroke Day Campaign Awards 2017 - Call for Applications 

We know that our members, partners and supporters pulled out all the stops for World Stroke Day 2017. So many people got behind the campaign and spoke with one voice about the need for everyone to take stroke prevention seriously.

Our map of World Stroke Day activity was densely packed with pins, showing a world united in tackling stroke. Social media channels buzzed with messages about stroke prevention. While some people were moved to sing and dance, (yes, we're looking at you Brazil!) others ran marathons through city streets, many shared moving personal stories of loss and the challenges of stroke recovery.

We are in awe of the energy and creativity of all our World Stroke Day supporters and, as part of our commitment to recognize and share best practice, we are pleased to invite WSO Members, partners and supporters to apply for a 2017 World Stroke Day Campaign Award.  You can apply on behalf of your own organization, or nominate a society or individual that you think did an exceptional job in raising awareness of stroke risk.

There are three categories for award submissions:

  • Individual Achievement Award
  • Best campaign in a Low- to Middle-Income Country
  • Best campaign in a High Income Country

The deadline for awards is 30th November 2017. Winners will be announced in February 2018 and will receive a year's free membership of the World Stroke Organisation, opening the door to a range of benefits including member rates on World Stroke Congress Registration, free access to the International Journal of Stroke and the World Stroke Organisation newsletter. We will also profile your achievement in our blog and popular social media channels.

For more information and to access the online application form, visit the World Stroke Campaign Awards page .

  1. Nice post! Thank for sharing this information..
    Stroke is a disease caused by a brain stain that results in paralysis, coma or unconsciousness, blindness and other problems that affect the mind and body.
    Common symptoms of stroke are:
    - Numbness or weakness in the hands or feet
    - Sudden blindness
    - It's hard to speak properly
    The next symptom is arm weakness.
    To know whether the patient has arm weakness, he will be asked to raise both arms and when one arm drifts downward, then he is positive for the second symptom.
