Welcome to the International Alliance for Pediatric Stroke (IAPS)!
The International Alliance for Pediatric Stroke (IAPS) was created to unite pediatric stroke communities around the world. IAPS provides knowledge, hope, resources and the connection between families, medical specialists, researchers, healthcare providers and anyone affected by pediatric stroke. Through our website, awareness projects, outreach and education, we hope you will find what you need to better understand how strokes impact infants, children and unborn babies.
