Welcome to MT2020

Mission Thrombectomy 2020 is a global coalition initiated by SVIN that aims to accelerate worldwide access to rapid emergency mechanical thrombectomy (MT) for stroke due to large vessel occlusion (LVO). In collaboration with our partners, we develop and implement high impact public health interventions (PHI) that have the potential to double the annual rate of MT every two years: from ~100,000 in 2018 to 202,000 by the year 2020. The campaign will continue with the ongoing goal of doubling access to MT every two years worldwide.
