Geo-Spatial Analysis of the Incidence of Stroke in Osun-State. Nigeria.

Lead a team work that is constantly using cartography output to visualize the spread of stroke patients and the contributing factors in Osun State. A topographic and other map in both digital and hard-copy formats were geo-referenced to the area, after wish a geospatial analysis of the incidence of stroke was conducted in the state using stroke patient’s hospital records from hospitals all over Osun State as our attribute table. From our result, a database of all stroke patients in Osun was developed, which could be updated with more data becoming available. Programs aimed at reducing the incidence of stroke patients were also implemented so as to improve the welfare and image of stroke patients in Osun as our effort in fighting off the chronic disease “stroke” from affecting the rest of the population through a national network of multidisciplinary volunteers. The organization is now working on adopting the template for other states in Nigeria, West Africa.
