AF Association Global AF Aware Week (GAFAW) is an annual awareness week that brings attention to the most common arrhythmia (heart rhythm disorder), Atrial Fibrillation or AF, which can affect adults of any age. Our "Detect, Protect, Correct & Perfect" campaign aims to easily detect AF with a simple 30-second pulse check preventing AF-related stroke or heart failure.*

DETECT AF with a simple Pulse Check, PROTECT against AF-related stroke using anti-coagulation therapy (not aspirin), CORRECT the irregular rhythm with access to appropriate treatment, PERFECT the patient care pathway
If pulse checks were routine, thousands of lives could be saved every year. Our Know Your Pulse (KYP) program has led to significant advances in awareness, policy and the management of heart rhythm disorders. We continue our efforts through GAFAW and encourage the early detection of AF to prevent AF-related strokes and heart failure.
