Stroke in Nepal

Did you know there are only 10 neurologists working on stroke in Nepal? We have just received a heartfelt article on this for the journal, and it reminds you why you build international relationships where you share information resources and time; the World Stroke Organization is such a valuable resource and source of support for developing countries. Those in the west cannot imagine working in these conditions; non-existent time windows, no public campaigns or government support, no rehabilitation options, no telemedicine, very high risk of disability and death. Not to mention palliative care, family support and information etc.
