Thank You for World Stroke Day 2017

THANK YOU for an incredible World Stroke Day 2017!

World Stroke Day 2017

While the dust is still settling from World Stroke Day 2017 we would like to say a HUGE thank you to all of our member organisations, supporters and partners who helped us to show why we should all take stroke prevention seriously!

Numbers from the day show that we have achieved some campaign records this year:
  • 208 events registered in 62 countries
  • Toolkit resources translated into 14 languages
  • Over 10,000 document downloads (brochure, poster, infographic, web banner, news release)
  • 20,000 additional downloads of the Stroke Riskometer
  • 110,000 Facebook reach on World Stroke Day
  • 20,000 views of campaign video on Facebook and YouTube channels
  • 7,500 views of ‘My reason’ stroke survivor stories on WSO blog platform
  • 180 sign ups and 742K reach on Thunderclap
  • Twitter and Facebook following up 25% and 20% respectively since November 2016
Of course, the numbers only tell part of the story. For us, the best indicators of World Stroke Day success were the individual stories and conversations on the streets, in community halls, in the media and on social media around the globe. We are sincerely grateful to everyone who took the time to organise and participate in events and in particular to those who shared their very personal stories and the profound reasons that we all have to prevent stroke. 

We are also grateful for the support and engagement of our colleagues across the Non-Communicable Disease community who shared our messages to new audiences and helped us to position stroke prevention squarely on the health and development agenda. 

If you have updates, photos and success stories from your World Stroke Day activities please share them with us e-mail
