Stroke Alliance for Europe (SAFE) is organising an Annual Working Conference in Zagreb, Croatia, from 6-8th December 2017. There will be more then 100 delegates from over 30 European countries. The Working Conference will cover topics such as current and future projects aiming to reduce the number of new strokes in Europe and enable better life for stroke survivors and their families with the consequences of this disease.

SAFE started a project called „Stroke Support Organisation Faculty Tool- SSOFT“. At the moment, the focus is on building an online platform for education of stroke support organisations and individuals about stroke and how to advocate for improvement of the prevention, treatment and post-stroke care.
