The World Stroke Organization (WSO) is the world’s leading organization in the fight against stroke. It was established in October 2006 through the merger of the International Stroke Society and the World Stroke Federation with the purpose of constituting one world voice for stroke. Today, WSO has more than 2,600 individual members and over 60 society members from 85 different countries.
WSO’s mission is to reduce the global burden of stroke through prevention, treatment and long term care. WSO collaborates closely with the World Health Organization (WHO), which has approved the WSO as a non-governmental organization (NGO) for official relations, the only one whose mission is strictly devoted to stroke.
