Competition on “Best organizer of a movement against stroke-2012”


In the worldwide, the brain stroke has become the main reason from among other neurological diseases of making people invalids and ranks as the second cause of deaths and in this regard, every 6 seconds there is an occurrence of stroke in the world, thus affecting 1 from among 6 citizen of the world  by stroke and annually, the 15 million people are affected by stroke. Because of this reason, there was established the World stroke association, which organizes every year the “World Stroke Day”, starting from 2002  and fights against the decease of stroke

The matters of deaths and becoming disabled due to stroke are becoming the one of most confronting issues for all medical staff and especially neurologists. In our country, the occurrence of stroke is increasing year by year and the death ratio due to stroke is becoming close to death ratio due to cancer and heart attack and this gives alarms to us. The stroke is starting to affect in our country the young people in best productive age, whereas it used to affect before mainly the elderly people. The  stroke is not caused by infection, virus or bacteria but the individual lays the path to this disease by himself and we, doctors perhaps are not working properly on preventing, treatment or controlling of this process.

This is why, in the case we – doctors and professionals will manage to duly realize this problem, mobilize the consciousness of the public – it will result in the reduction of the occurrences of stroke.
