World Stroke Day 2019

Initiatives that make a difference: Inform – Prevent. World Stroke Day falls on the 29th of October each year. It has been marked as a day of global action and awareness of stroke and its burden on millions of people worldwide, directly or indirectly affected. It is also the perfect day to focus on campaigns that aim to have an impact by influencing policies towards a further improvement of the stroke care system. Many regions across Europe have joined the cause by organizing events to raise awareness on stroke. In Spain, informative events and initiatives took place in Catalonia, Community of Madrid, Seville, Navarra and Valencia.
