ABSTRACT Background: According to world health organization stroke is the third leading cause of death accounting for approximately 4.6 million deaths annually, Stroke requires immediate specialized medical care and it’s associated with debilitating life-long complication. Stroke is currently increasing in developing countries thus the need to find the prevalence in different hospitals, regions, and Uganda at large. This study is aimed to determine the prevalence of stroke and the demographic profiles of patients admitted with stroke in medical ward of KIU-TH in 2018. Method: Retrospective cross sectional descriptive study design was employed and it involved use of data extraction forms to gather information from patients’ files. The total of 2384 patients’ files was reviewed. Results: The total of 2384 patients were admitted in medical ward of KIU-TH in 2018 and 42 patients had stroke and the rest had non-stroke conditions, This therefore reflected a prevalence of stroke in medical ward of KIU-TH to be 1.76% in 2018. Stroke was more pronounced in elderly patients (above 55years) evidenced by 78.6% as compared to middle aged (36-55years) 21.4% and young adults (13-35) 4.8%. Stroke occurred more in female patients (61.9%) as compared to male (38.1%) patients. Majority of the patients that suffered stroke were married (54.8%), followed by those that had lost partners (35.7%), and lastly by those that divorced (9.5%.
