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

Cardiovascular health concerns every living person in the world.

From hereditary conditions to lifestyle habits to societal and environmental contexts, our hearts face many threats. This is why in each country and community there are doctors, nurses, carers, researchers, campaigners and advocates for heart health. The World Heart Federation, which I have the privilege to lead for the next two years, is at the helm of the effort to achieve cardiovascular health for everyone, everywhere.
