About Action on Pre-eclampsia

Action on Pre-eclampsia (APEC) International aims to raise public and professional awareness of pre-eclampsia, improve care, and ease or prevent physical and emotional suffering caused by the disease.

History of APEC

Action on Pre-eclampsia (UK) was set up in 1991 by Isabel Walker and Professor Chris Redman.
Isabel lost her first baby as a result of pre-eclampsia and was surprised to find out that there was no information and support for women who had suffered like her.
