Stroke occurs suddenly at any age, sex or social class. It is the second leading cause of death in the world, responsible for 6 million deaths each year and the leading cause of disability due to the consequences that may leave. In Brazil and Ceará, stroke is the leading cause of death. Every 5 minutes a Brazilian dies from this disease, accounting for 100,000 deaths annually. An epidemiological study of the Integrated Care Program for stroke in the State of Ceará, with data collected since 2006 in 19 hospitals in Fortaleza states that are approximately 18, 000 cases of stroke each year and about half of the cases are patients from the countryside. Within this number, about 4,500 people die. Therefore, the importance of the campaign " stroke ... I Care" which was held in a country city of Ceará by medical students on the same date to commemorate the World''s Stroke Day. Besides focusing on risk factors, signs alert and emergency treatment of stroke, the campaign emphasized the importance of post stroke care, family, caregivers and associations to support patients.
