Stroke Association Support Network Ghana adds its voice to the #enoughNCDS Campaign

As the WSO leadership participated in the Civil Society Hearing at the UN in New York in preparation for the High Level Meeting on NCDS in September, WSO Stroke Support Organisation member, Stroke Association Support Network Ghana put stroke on the agenda of the #enoughNCDS Campaign in Ghana. 





At the end of June the Ghana NCD Alliance held its planning meeting for national engagement in the  UN High Level Meeting on Non-Communicable Diseases (UN HLM) to be held in September 2018. 
Members of the Ghana NCD Alliance, which includes the Stroke Association Support Network Ghana are aiming to raise awareness of Ghanaian political and major stakeholders on the need to prioritize NCDs as a national issue ahead of the UN HLM. Mr. Ebenezer Adams, the Vice Chairperson of the Ghana NCD Alliance, and member of the Stroke Association Support Network Ghana, gave the welcome address. He reminded participants that  NCDs, including stroke, affect people in every country, rich and poor, old and young, in cities and in villages, the privileged and the vulnerable. At some point in our lives, they are likely to affect each and every one of us.

On 7th August, a National High Level meeting was organised by the Ghana NCD Alliance. The Government was represented by the Hon Minster of Planning and the Chairman of the Inter Ministerial Committee. The Stroke Association called for improvement in the lives of people affected by stroke in Ghana, in particular through the national Livelihood Empowerment Program and through the realisation of the Global Stroke Bill of Rights.
