WSO welcomes the Red Bracelet Volunteers Corps


The World Stroke Organization (WSO) is excited to welcome the Red Bracelet Volunteer Corps, part of the Chinese Stroke Association (CSA), as a stroke support organization member.


CSA established the Red Bracelet Volunteers Corps to provide education and support for stroke survivors, families and healthcare professionals involved in stroke treatment, management and rehabilitation across China.

This Corps has 1,100 facility members and 29,700 individual members throughout China, who engage in activities such as awareness campaigning, prevention screening, lobbying for better services, providing services and support in the community.



In March 2016
CSA received the World Stroke Day 2015 Award for the use of FAST in Chinese, along with the positive message of “Happy Life” to engage younger audiences. There was also positive collaboration with other organizations that helped the stroke awareness message reach 123 Chinese cities. 

The Coordinator of the Red Bracelet Volunteer Corps, Professor Wang ShaoShi, is a member of the Stroke Support Organization Committee of the WSO and said ‘we are very happy to become a member of the global stroke support organization network. It is important for us to share knowledge and experience with other organizations that are engaged in stroke awareness and support across the globe, so that we can be one world voice for stroke’.
