"Stroke is the epidemic of the 21st century," says Prof Raad Shakir, President of the World Federation of Neurology (WFN), explaining the organisation's decision to adopt "Stroke is a brain attack: Prevent it - treat it" as its motto for this year's World Brain Day which is celebrated in partnership with the World Stroke Organisation (WSO). World Brain Day was launched by the WFN in 2014 and is dedicated to a different topic every year. The date for this awareness day was not chosen at random: The WFN was founded on 22 July 1957. "We want to use this initiative to help reduce the number of deaths and disabilities caused by stroke," Prof Shakir says. [more]
