What we’ve achieved
HPP worked with a group of expert advisers from across Europe to develop the White Paper on inequalities and unmet needs in the detection of atrial fibrillation (AF) and use of therapies to prevent AF‑related stroke in Europe.
In November 2018, the report was launched online and at an event at the UK Parliament. The event was held by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Atrial Fibrillation as part of Global AF Aware Week, and the report was presented by Trudie Lobban MBE, who was one of the expert advisers on the project.
The report was the culmination of several months’ work that included an advocacy summit at which the advisory board reached consensus on the key issues around inequalities and unmet needs in AF-related stroke. HPP also developed a communications toolkit to help stakeholders disseminate the report and its key messages.
This project is a continuation of HPP’s previous work in this area, the Route Map for Change & the European Atlas on the Prevention of AF-Related Stroke. The Route Map for Change contains detailed case studies, country profiles and priority areas for policy action, and has been translated into several languages.
