Project Description

Stroke is the second leading cause of death and disability worldwide, and the highest rates of stroke and greatest stroke-related morbidity and mortality are found in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). While effective systems of care to improve stroke outcomes exist in high-income countries, they are lacking in most LMICs. This project aims to understand current stroke care practices at the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka, Zambia, convene a stroke working group to adapt international stroke guidelines to the Zambian setting, and evaluate their impact on stroke-related outcomes.
