For this reason, we are asking all of our supporters to join with us to promote our Detect, Protect, Correct & Perfect campaign to spread the word, whether this is by simply sharing and displaying information, holding an AF Awareness activity, or fundraising and donating to the AF Association.

During Global AF Aware Week, we will once again be holding an event at the Palace of Westminster, London. We will be posting regular updates and will provide information on how you can register your interest to attend.
Over one million people have been diagnosed with AF in the UK alone, although experts estimate that at least a third more remain undiagnosed. With an ageing population, this number is expected to double by 2050.
