World Stroke Organization– Lancet Neurology Commission

Valery Feigin is a co-chair of a WSO Lancet Neurology Commission on global stroke.

If implemented by policy makers, in collaboration with stakeholders in every country, the WSO recommendations could lead to substantial improvements in prevention of stroke, acute treatment, and rehabilitation worldwide. The Commission also provides guidance on the epidemiological surveillance necessary to monitor progress.
