Establishing Stroke Units

In 2013, stroke was the second most common cause of death (11.8% of all deaths) worldwide, after ischemic heart disease (14.8% of all deaths) and the third most common cause of disability. Overall, the GBS 2013 stroke burden estimates confirmed previous observations about the significant increase in stroke burden in the world over the last two and half decades especially in developing countries, and substantial geographical variations in stroke burden.

UOSSM-Canada is establishing vital Stroke Units in some of the world's most under-resourced countries. Help us lower the rate of stroke mortality and deliver comprehensive medical care to people suffering from this life-threatening illness.
