strokeOf the 15 million cerebrovascular accidents, a.k.a strokes, that occur each year, more than 13% – or 2 million – happen in China. In fact, it is the leading cause of death in the country.

A third of its victims die, while another third, coming in at just under a million people, are left with some form of permanent physical disability or neurologic deficit.
