University of Oslo Awards Grant to Task Force 4 Ukraine.

We are delighted to notify you that the University of Oslo has granted 29,000 euros for the taskforce’s efforts.

According to a recent report by the World Health Organization (WHO), Ukraine witnesses approximately 130,000 stroke cases annually, with higher mortality rates compared to most European countries. In Ukraine, nearly 20% of admitted stroke patients die within the first month of stroke onset, and stroke accounts for 13% of all deaths in the country.

The European Stroke Organisation Task Force for Ukraine was established to support stroke care and physicians during the war. By addressing the urgent needs and improving stroke care in Ukraine, this project aims to make a meaningful impact on the lives of stroke patients and support healthcare professionals in providing better care during the ongoing war.
