Mission Thrombectomy is an outreach initiative aimed at increasing access to stroke care globally.
About Mission Thrombectomy
Mission Thrombectomy was founded in 2016 as a global initiative by the Society of Vascular and Interventional Neurology (SVIN). It is tasked with doubling access to thrombectomy treatment every two years in every country around the world by effecting change through public policy and advocacy.
This peer-network of volunteer committees is led by stroke and neurointerventional providers, public health officials, and other stakeholders in over 100 countries. Mission Thrombectomy is committed to speeding up the availability of stroke treatment and reducing death and disability from stroke globally.
Mission Thrombectomy will work to increase stroke awareness and access to mechanical thrombectomy around the globe.
We will do this by:
- Analyzing, designing, developing, implementing, and evaluating solutions to region-specific barriers to stroke and mechanical thrombectomy access.
- Identifying gaps via research and surveys to expand access to stroke and mechanical thrombectomy internationally.
- Training and/or public health programs for mechanical thrombectomy and stroke care globally.
- Promoting SVIN membership and initiatives through committee activities.
