Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is associated with increased risk of stroke and is found in one third of all ischemic strokes. It is under-diagnosed and for this reason poises a significant burden of risk and economic cost, which, could be managed and reduced if diagnosed more effectively.
The Word Heart Federation Roadmap for Non-Valvular Atrial Fibrillation identifies roadblocks and suggests potential solutions to improve cardiovascular health and help reach 25 by 25.
This WHF Roadmap has been written by twelve experts from around the world: Murphy A, Banerjee A, Breithardt G, Camm J, Commerford P, Freedman B, Gonzales Hermosillo J, Halperin J, Lau C, Perel P, Xavier D, Wood D, Jouven X, and Morillo C.
A Roadmap is a framework to identify roadblocks and suggest potential solutions on the way to 25 by 25. Global Roadmaps have been developed by worldwide experts to detect the problems and offer solutions on specific topics impacting cardiovascular mortality.
This Roadmap was launched on 3rd October 2016 at the WHF Roadmap event in Geneva, Switzerland, and has been published in the Global Heart Journal.
