World Stroke Day 2023: Due to the fact that one in every four adults will suffer a stroke in their lifespan, the official World Stroke Day is observed on October 29 with the intention of increasing global awareness of this condition. Simply put, a stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted, causing brain cells to sustain temporary or permanent injury. It is possible to recover from a stroke; however, those who fail to do so endure one or more permanent disabilities or, in the most severe cases, pass away. World Stroke Day serves to emphasize the preventability of stroke. Physical activity is among the most effective ways to decrease the risk of suffering a stroke. Regular exercise and healthy eating and imbibing will assist us in avoiding the one-in-four statistic. Stroke ranks as the leading cause of disability and ranks second in terms of cause of death from any disease.

Background on World Stroke Day

In 2006, the WSO observed the inaugural World Stroke Day. In the same year that the International Stroke Society (ISS) and the World Stroke Federation (WSF) merged, the organization was established. The WSO is a non-profit organization whose mission is to assist stroke survivors in resuming their lives and to raise awareness about the disease. The WSO’s official statement states that its purpose is to “encourage research and instruction in this field with the aim of enhancing the global standard of care for stroke victims.” By doing so, the organization demonstrates its dedication to acknowledging and valuing the endeavors of both healthcare and non-healthcare professionals who are working towards a global reduction in the incidence of stroke. Additionally, over 2400 participants in the biennial congress workshop that the WSO organized to date have benefited from significant skill sets. To enhance its outreach to a broader demographic, the organization has established the World Stroke Academy, an electronic learning platform.

October 29th is commemorated annually with a unique theme. “Little Strokes, Big Troubles” (2008), “Because I Care” (2013), and “Up Again After Stroke” (2018) are themes from prior years.

A stroke occurs when the cerebral blood supply is interrupted, whether in its entirety or in part. Due to the constant need for nutrients and oxygen, brain cells will begin to perish if the blood supply is not restored in a timely manner. For this reason, it is critical to initiate treatment for the patient as soon as symptoms of a stroke are suspected. A stroke is characterized by the following symptoms: unilateral loss of sensation, vision, or movement, accompanied by vertigo, confusion, and speech difficulties. Individuals who are overweight or obese, engage in tobacco use, or have hypertension or cholesterol, are prone to an increased risk of experiencing a stroke. A stroke can be avoided through the following measures: quitting tobacco use, maintaining a healthy diet and imbibing routine, engaging in regular physical activity, and attending to cardiovascular health.
