On 24-26th May 2017 I attended the European Stroke Conference in Berlin. This was a fascinating and stimulating event bringing together Stroke clinicians not just from many European countries but also the Americas, Asia, North Africa, the Middle East, Australia...but none from sub-Saharan Africa this year so I was proud to be flying the flag for Ghana by presenting our WGSP poster. I had only 3-4 minutes to speak, so it was challenging task compressing 8 years' progress into a clear overview of what the Partnership has achieved. Afterwards there were several questions and the audience were all impressed with the depth and quality of our work. I hope we will have future opportunities to present WGSP achievements to raise the profile of this and similar work throughout the Stroke community.
