Welcome to the International Alliance for Pediatric Stroke!
WORLD STROKE DAY
Was October 29, 2015
PEDIATRIC STROKE CAMPAIGN
In honor of World Stroke Day 2015, pediatric stroke advocacy organizations worldwide joined together to create a campaign dedicated to supporting pediatric stroke awareness across the globe! The campaign was a success, reaching over 30,000 people and adding almost 200 children to the World Map!
However, there is so much more stroke awareness that is needed for the pediatric population. The website is still up and running and we would love to see more "faces of pediatric stroke" on the map! We encourage you to visit the website at united4pediatricstroke.org
. Click on the World Map
on the website's BE VISIBLE
page. Share the name of the child, age at time of stroke, location in the world, brief story and a picture! We also encourage you to check out the UNITE FOR CHANGE
page for some incredible resources for pediatric stroke.
Thank you for being part of the pediatric stroke campaign not only on World Stroke Day, but all year long!
A stroke can happen to anyone at any age, including babies, children, teens, and even before birth. Unfortunately, there is very little information, support, and research for this population. The International Alliance for Pediatric Stroke (IAPS) was created to bring together global pediatric stroke communities, uniting in a common effort to advance knowledge, awareness and research for these children.
IAPS’s grassroots efforts are already making a difference, but we have a long way to go. Your support through donations and raising awareness are greatly appreciated! Check out our How You Can Help
page to find easy ways you can make a difference for children who have been impacted by stroke.
Our mission is proudly supported by leading pediatric neurologists and all of our information is approved by the physicians on our board. Our website provides extensive, comprehensive, and reliable resources for pediatric stroke. You can Get the Facts
, share our Fact Sheet
, connect with other organizations
, get access to many publications
and much, much more.
IAPS welcomes your comments, suggestions and questions. Please join us on this mission! We want to hear from you, so if you need help navigating the uncharted path of your pediatric stroke journey, contact
us. Together we will make a difference for all
children who are impacted by strokes!
