NCD Chronicles #4: Stroke Survivors Don’t Want To Be A Burden

 Stroke is one of the leading causes of deaths in Malaysia, as well as disability among stroke survivors. Because of that, a stroke has consequences that can last months and years, not only for the individual but their caregivers as well. On this episode of NCD Chronicles, we hear from Noor Aza Abd Aziz, more fondly known as Mama Aza, about her journey to recover since her stroke in April 2017, as well as from Tracy Chan, Head of Rehab at the National Stroke Association of Malaysia, on how we can better support stroke survivors and their caregivers throughout rehabilitation. 

NCD Chronicles is a series about people living with NCDs, going beyond the diagnosis to explore their personal experiences, their challenges, as well as the impact of their health condition on their loved ones. These stories reveal the importance of understanding the unique struggles and needs of the individuals behind the disease, in our response to the NCD epidemic.
