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. The Heart Rhythm Alliance campaign “Detect, Protect, Correct & Perfect”  aims to easily detect AF with a simple 30-second pulse check preventing AF-related stroke or heart failure. AF can be detected easily with a simple manual pulse check that only takes 30 seconds, and if pulse checks were routine, thousands of lives could be saved every year. Their Know Your Pulse (KYP) program and GAFAW has led to significant advances in awareness, policy and the management of heart rhythm disorders and they look forward to advancing the cause further during GAFAW 2020
