The task force

Sign Against Stroke is an international campaign governed by a taskforce of organisations whose reach is both local and global. Because AF and AF-related strokes affect so many worldwide, the common aim of these organisation is to reduce the number of strokes and to improve the lives of those living AF and effects of stroke.

The Global
AF-Patient Charter

Sign Against Stroke aims to gather 1.7 million signatures in support of the Charter – one for each of the estimated number of people with AF who lose their lives or are disabled every year due to stroke — and provide those signatures to healthcare decision makers in countries across the world.

Strong support backing the Charter recommendations will help put AF and AF-related stroke prevention at the forefront of national health agendas.

We will only email you with updates related to Sign Against Stroke and will not share it with third party.
