Roberto's story: after the stroke
Roberto Severino Campos
WHO/Chris de Bode

Roberto had his first stroke six years ago at the age of 46 — it left him with paralysed legs. He then lost his ability to speak after two more strokes four years later. Roberto used to work as a public transport agent, but now depends entirely on his family to survive.
