Volume 15 Number 1
  • ISSN : 1811-6515


Organised national structural and research efforts are crucial to minimising the high morbidity and mortality burdens attributed to cerebrovascular disease in Sudan. The dearth of quality research evidence to guide decision making in neurological services, and the lack of political will and resources have accounted for the uncertainty regarding this major health problem in Sudan. This article reviews the research efforts on cerebrovascular diseases in Sudan from an epidemiological and health-service point of view, highlighting areas of information deficiency and recommending health-system and research-based interventions to improve cerebrovascular disease status in Sudan.
