WISE - Women Initiative for Stroke in Europe

About WISE

Women Initiative for Stroke in Europe is an ESO Working Group to guarantee better stroke care for women. WISE aims to promote scientific initiatives and efforts which emphasise women’s stroke care. Europe has marked diversities in its health care systems, as well as its economic and social fabric. These differences have been shown to influence cardiovascular risk profile in patients along with the incidence of cerebrovascular disease. These differences frequently translate into disparities regarding patient outcome; especially for women who tend to fair worse than men after a stroke. WISE is working to bridge the gap in women’s stroke care throughout Europe.
