World Stroke Day — 2022
WSO has announced that the focus of both the 2021 and 2022 campaigns centers on awareness of the signs of stroke and the need for timely access to quality stroke treatment.
#PreciousTime is the promotional slogan for the 2022 World Stroke Day campaign.
What does #PresciousTime Mean?
Every second counts when someone has a stroke. As brain tissue and millions of neurons deteriorate, time becomes increasingly valuable.
The Precious Time campaign promotes stroke awareness and the benefits of acting FAST after a stroke, according to the World Stroke Association. The ultimate goal is to communicate that life can be saved, as well as independence, quality of life, and precious memories.
