Our vision

Cardiovascular health for everyone

We believe every human being should have access to the information, care and treatment they need to keep their heart healthy, regardless of race, nationality, gender, age, education or income. At the World Heart Federation, we work tirelessly to ensure the global population is provided with accurate and up to date details and data on cardiovascular diseases.

Who we are

The World Heart Federation is the voice of the global cardiovascular community.

Our Members are our strength and our priority is to build strong health systems so that everyone has access to prevention and care. Guided by science, our values of care, equity, community, integrity, and aspiration inspire us to continue building on results. Together, we can achieve cardiovascular health for everyone.
