About Us


First Steps

First Steps

It was in June 2006, when the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties approved the request of the Saudi Advisory Group Against Stroke (SAGAS) to establish the Saudi Stroke Association (SSA).


1st General assembly

Following that, the 1st general assembly was conducted in January 2007, at King Fahd Medical City, to elect the SSA board members, and the Society was officially formed. Since the formation of the board, the vision, mission, goals, objectives and bylaws were developed and finalized. Also, different committees were created to serve the Society in an organized manner and in the best way


At the present

The Saudi Stroke Society is proud to launch the newly redesigned website on the World Stroke Awareness Day.
