Asia Pacific Stroke Conference 2023
Secured by Ambassadors, Professor Geoffrey Donnan and Professor Julie Bernhardt
Fifteen million people suffer from stroke worldwide each year. In the Asian region alone, nine million people suffer from stroke. The burden of stroke presents as a massive challenge not only in the Asian region, but on a global scale.
To face the challenges of stroke disorders in the Asia Pacific region, the executive committees of the Asia Pacific Stroke Association and the Japan Stroke Forum made a formal decision to merge, resulting in the establishment of the ‘Asia Pacific Stroke Organisation’ (APSO).
APSO delivers the Asia Pacific Stroke Conference annually to enhance stroke research, care and policy across Asia. The conference includes a plenary symposia, concurrent symposia, a body of concurrent sessions and workshops, all forming around core focal areas that include: Endovascular Thrombectomy for Hyperacute Stroke, Acute Stroke Management, Stroke Prevention, Multimodal Imaging for Stoke Management, ICH & SAH.
