HELP US REVOLUTIONISE STROKE CARE IN MALAWI - FIRST STROKE UNIT
The effects of stroke can be devastating, resulting in death or disability, especially in developing countries like Malawi where stroke is the 3rd leading cause of death. In Malawi, stroke most commonly occurs when people are in their 40s or 50s and providing for their families.
We need to:
- Develop a highly skilled
team to deliver stroke care in Malawi.
- Build a stroke unit in Malawi so there is a dedicated space to deliver stroke care by the highly skilled team.
- Help link existing services in Malawi that can provide effective stroke care both in hospital and in the community.
- Develop the concept of the multi-disciplinary team (doctor, nurse therapist) all working together as one, a model that has provided highly functioning teams making the delivery of stroke care the success you see in the UK.
