Welcome and thank you for visiting our site! Stroke is a leading cause of disability and the second leading cause of death in the Philippines.
With an epidemic of unmanaged stroke risk factors and an aging population, we expect to see more stroke patients.We at the Stroke Society
of the Philippines (SSP) have one common aspiration - to reduce the mortality and morbidity due to stroke in the Philippines.
Join us in our fight against stroke. We have assembled different materials for stroke awareness that will be interesting for the lay people
as well as for the medical professionals. Feel free to download the SSP Guidelines for the Prevention, treatment and Rehabilitation of Stroke.
Please check out our locally developed information materials including our SSP produced videos on overview of stroke, rehabilitation, nutrition
This year, SSP has chosen the Bicol area to hold its 15th Annual convention with our theme ““Back to Basics in Bicol: Best Practices in
Community - Based Stroke Care” to be held on July 31 - August 2, 2014 at the Avenue Plaza Hotel, Naga City. We have crafted a scientific
program and assembled luminaries in the field of Stroke to enlighten delegates with what is current and effective for stroke management.
If you would like to share your talents and resources to help us in our fight against stroke, please get in touch with us through our secretariat. We need all the help we can get!
