Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to form a world class stroke support organization in the Caribbean and ensure all persons touched by stroke get the help they need.
It's all part of making a better world.
I want to achieve a reduction in the number of deaths and disabilities caused by stroke and chronic non communicable diseases. I want to create Universal Health Coverage by developing health system interventions to address inequities.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by stroke survivors, family caregivers, vulnerable and marginalized groups within society.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Reduction in the number of deaths and disabilities caused by stroke
Improved health outcomes due to people accessing services they need of sufficient quality to be effective, while ensuring that the use of these services does not expose them to financial hardship
Increase the number of health system strengthening interventions that address societal problems
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
The number of persons aware of and having access to affordable and reliable stroke support services. The number of deaths caused by stroke.
The number of persons with disabilities caused by stroke.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
