Prevent brain stroke

By Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh WHO Regional Director for South-East Asia A ‘brain stroke’ or a ‘brain attack’ is an event and condition that many of us know little about, but each one of us has the capacity to prevent and detect.

Both incidents can cause lasting vision problems, seizures, fatigue, loss of speech, memory loss, and paralysis among other adverse effects. If severe enough, they can also cause death. In low-and middle-income countries, which include those of the WHO South-East Asia Region, over 11 million strokes occur every year. This causes 4 million deaths annually, and leaves approximately 30% of survivors seriously disabled. For the 70% of survivors who recover, the likelihood of suffering further strokes is greatly increased. People with high blood pressure, high cholester
