AF-A aims

The AF Association is an international charity which focuses on raising awareness of atrial fibrillation (AF) by providing information and support materials for patients and medical professionals involved in detecting, diagnosing and managing AF.

All information booklets published by AFA have been approved by an AF medical panel.

AF-A is fortunate to have Dr Mike Davis, Professor Ben Freedman and Dr Gerry Kaye as Medical Advisory Committee supporters.  These individuals guide our publications to ensure they are accurate, quality and reliable.

Mrs Trudie Lobban MBE is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer and Mrs Jo Jerrome, the Deputy CEO.

Quite simply:

"AF is the most common cardiac rhythm problem and causes considerable misery for many people. The AFA will help patients to understand and get access to established and new or innovative treatments for AF"

Prof Richard Schilling - Consultant Cardiologist and Trustee AF-A International

Therefore, AF-A aims to:

  • Provide support and information on atrial fibrillation to those affected by this condition

  • Advance the education of the medical profession and the general public on the subject of atrial fibrillation
