Joint Statement ESO and SAFE commemorate European Stroke Awareness Day 9 May 2023

Europe is failing to provide adequate stroke care and support
The scale of stroke care crisis is laid bare by new data release

New data collected as part of the Stroke Action Plan for Europe (SAP-E) Stroke Service Tracker reveals the
gross inequity of access to care and support for stroke patients and stroke survivors across Europe.

The SAP-E was launched in 2018 to provide a framework for European governments to improve stroke care
and support for all European citizens. As part of this plan, data from 36 countries across Europe, covering
12 key areas of improvement, has been collected in and is available via the SAP-E website.
