The Angels Initiative won the prestigious 2018 EFPIA Health Collaboration Award for Improving Stroke Care

In November 2018 the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) announced the winners of the Health Collaboration Award. In competition with 80 submitted projects, the Angels Initiative was the overall winner of the EFPIA Award for 2018.

The Angels Initiative is a unique healthcare programme launched by Boehringer Ingelheim, in partnership with the European Stroke Organisation (ESO), the World Stroke Organization (WSO) and the Stroke Alliance for Europe (SAFE). The Angels Initiative’s goal is to improve stroke outcomes, save lives and reduce long-term disability.


The Stroke Alliance for Europe, a stroke support organisation member of WSO,  collaborated with the Angels Initiative in Europe in 2018. In selected hospitals in 12 European countries: Spain, Serbia, Poland, Czech Republic, Latvia, Croatia, Macedonia, Greece, Ukraine, Georgia, Hungary and Turkey, stroke patients and their carers are provided with information on stroke and next steps on their path to recovery. 

There are five patient-focused brochures, which are translations of Stroke Association UK resources, and include local information. 

 “Patients and medical staff like the brochures. Everyone thinks they are very helpful.”
Adam Siger, Polish stroke support organisation Fundacja Udaru Mozgu

“We didn’t have similar patient materials in the past. Now that we do, patient often take all five different brochures and even try to take more copies, for relatives and neighbours.”
Mikheil Shavgulidze, Georgian stroke organisation Mkurnali Foundation
