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 creating one world voice for stroke. Today, WSO has more than 4000 individual members and over 60 society members from 85 different countries.
Achieving our vision of a life free of stroke is a task that WSO cannot achieve alone. We are committed to building our partnerships at global, regional and national level to scale up and deliver improvements in prevention, treatment and support to reduce the burden of stroke.
