The Health Ministry plans to set up special care centers for ischemic strokes in all hospitals across the country. “The centers will provide immediate and timely treatment for stroke patients before they are taken to special wards or specialized hospitals,” said Dr Masoud Mehrpour, secretary of the Iranian Stroke Society, ISNA reported. The ministry has launched a 24/7 project for cardiac care at 53 medical centers in the country where services are offered round the clock for people at risk to reduce delay and provide efficient care. About 50% of all premature deaths in the country are caused by strokes and heart attacks.
