Welcome to new SSO member Stroke Organisation Zimbabwe

The Stroke Organisation Zimbabwe has become an SSO member of the World Stroke Organization. With 50 members, the organisation's aims are to:

  • Promote prevention and care of people with stroke
  • Education in collaboration with other international, public and private organisations
  • Foster the best standards of practice and facilitate clinical research for the benefit of people at risk of stroke
Belinda Pfende, President of the Stroke Organisation Zimbabwe, is a physiotherapist. In her practice she saw the great gap in knowledge in society about stroke, its causes and how it can be prevented. Belinda therefore started the stroke support organisation, the first one in Zimbabwe. When Belinda first reached out to WSO she said 'your organisation is exactly what I have been looking for to enhance my professional development and also raise awareness about stroke.'

We welcome Stroke Organisation Zimbabwe as one of our newest SSO members and really look forward to working together to combat stroke in Zimbabwe. The new WSO member has a soccer tournament planned on 11th November for World Stroke Day.
