The blitzconference is part of the Stroke and Aphasia Association's campaign on the occasion of 14.05.2024. European Stroke Awareness Day. The thematic focus of this year's campaign is related to the European Stroke Plan and its key performance indicators. Thanks to the efforts of the AIA, at the end of 2021. Bulgaria was one of the first countries to adopt this strategic European document with a Declaration of the Ministry of Health. By signing this declaration, Bulgaria is committed to creating a Bulgarian national plan to combat stroke. Unfortunately, so far no such has been created, and the AEA's plea for a thorough analysis to precede the creation of a national plan encashes a lack of audibility from both governments (official, temporary or short-lived) and national professional medical organizations. This behavior is difficult to explain, given the negative statistics that have been developing in the country since the 1960s. For more than half a century in Bulgaria, the question WHY almost 50,000 Bulgarians are killed by a stroke every year, 5,000 of them lose their lives in this incident, 1,500 of them do not even reach hospital, and nearly 20,000 remain disabled for life. Driven by its belief that significant changes begin with the small right steps, in the conditions of lack of any funding for the activities of patient organizations in Bulgaria, the Association for Stroke and Aphasia launched the initiative BlitzConferences for journalists to increase the quality of understanding of stroke by that part of our society that is called upon to provide accurate, timely and meaningful information to all of us – journalists. We are confident that supported, their expertise will have an impact in asking the RIGHT QUESTIONS that will lead to the RIGHT ANSWERS. In the first edition of the Stroke Conference we will answer the question of what stroke really is, what are the risk factors, is it possible to avoid or control them and how, what are the symptoms of stroke and what to do in case we distinguish them. In addition, we will clarify the statistical data in the country, the available methods of treatment, the access of our population to modern treatment. At the same time, we will learn about how one of the most advanced technologies in the field of stroke diagnostics has been successfully implemented and works, through which access to modern treatment is provided for a whole area in Bulgaria. In addition, we will learn what aphasia is, which occurs in more than 35% of stroke sufferers in the country. Last but not least, the Infobot for Stroke Association, developed by the Infobot Association, will be demonstrated – a pocket manual based on artificial intelligence that can help each of us, whether they are now colliding or already suffering directly or indirectly from the stroke.
