Now in its second year the World Stroke Day campaign is focused on building public awareness of stroke symptoms and the need for emergency access to specialist stroke treatment. As a stroke specialist you know that every minute following a stroke is precious, knowing the signs - face dropping, arm weakness, speech and communication difficulties and calling for emergency medical treatment saves lives and improves outcomes for survivors. We want this information is seen by as many people as possible so are calling on you to get involved in spreading the word in your networks and communities.
World Stroke Day is coming up FAST! If you want to find out how you can get involved and support the WSO Minutes Save Lives #Precioustime campaign, head over to www.worldstokecampaign.org to get all the information and tools you need.
How you can help spread the word
Share the #Precioustime campaign on social
The World Stroke Day campaign toolkit has now been fully translated and "off the shelf resources" including stroke symptom animations in Arabic, Chinese, English, Hindi, French, German, Portuguese (European and Brazilian), Russian and Spanish (European and Latin American) are available to support your campaign activation and engagement.
From e-mail signature footers, social media profile images, to stroke symptom animations for Instagram, these are great resources that can be used to share the global message while highlighting key issues in your community. Please be sure to use the #Precioustime or (the translation provided in the toolkit) so we can monitor, spot, share and reflect your contribution in our World Stroke Day impact report.
Screen or share our campaign videos
We have developed two videos to support the campaign, these can be screened at public events, or shared on websites, intranets and social media channels to help raise awareness of the signs of stroke and the importance of saving #Precioustime.

Support the #Precioustime selfie-campaign
Personal messages on corporate and individual social media channels are a great way to help broaden the reach and raise awareness. This year to reinforce the message that every minute counts when it comes to stroke WSO is asking our community to take a photo with a clock and use our interactive social media and poster building tool on to create a bespoke message to share on World Stroke Day. The tool supports messages in Arabic, Chinese, English, Hindi, French, German, Portuguese, Russian or Spanish.
How FAST can you spot the signs of stroke and call for an ambulance? Our online stroke symptom spotting game will time you over several rounds, even levelling up to add balance/dizziness and eyesight changes to the mix. Once you have your personal best you can screenshot your time, share on social with #Precioustime, tag some friends with a link to www.strokespotter.org so they can try to and beat your personal best! If you enter your time to the leaderboard, you’ll be in with a chance of winning a fitness tracker.
