40 Years of the World Heart Federation

14 Dec 2018

“Whatever you call it, 20 years, 40 years… It’s nice to have a number that justifies the celebration, but I would celebrate the World Heart Federation every year if you’re asking me.”

– WHF Past President Valentin Fuster


Over the last 40 years, the World Heart Federation has advocated for a simple idea: Every Heartbeat Matters. But our work is only just beginning.

Please join us in celebrating the 40th anniversary of the World Heart Federation. Watch our 40th Anniversary Video, featuring President Prof David Wood, President-Elect Prof Karen Sliwa, and Past Presidents Prof Antonio Bayés de Luna, Prof Valentin Fuster, Prof Mario Maranhao, Prof Pekka Puska, Prof Sidney Smith, Prof K.
