Siemens Healthineers and World Stroke Organization partner to raise global access to stroke care

11th June, 2024

Two-year partnership with focus on low- and middle-income countries

Siemens Healthineers and the World Stroke Organization (WSO) announced a two-year partnership to develop the acute stroke workforce and improve treatment and care for stroke.

The partnership will have a new global scope, building on a successful program of hands-on workshops to deliver education and training programs aimed at strengthening clinical capacity and driving access to mechanical thrombectomy. This minimally invasive surgery to remove blood clots in the brain significantly improves outcomes for patients but remains unavailable to most who would benefit. Delivery of mechanical thrombectomy requires a complex range of actions across the healthcare system, from raising public awareness of stroke symptoms to ensuring timely hospital presentation, to bringing acute healthcare systems up to levels that enable fast diagnosis and clinical decision-making. WSO programs work to address this system change through a Stroke Center Certification program, clinical education and public awareness campaigns. 

Siemens Healthineers provides holistic solutions along the entire stroke pathway. The aim is to get as many stroke patients to the right treatment as fast and as efficiently as possible to prevent irreversible brain-tissue damage by timely intervention.
