The World Heart Federation is dedicated to leading the global fight against Cardiovascular Disease (CVD), including heart disease and stroke. We are the only global advocacy and leadership organisation bringing together the CVD community to drive the agenda and help people to live longer, better and more heart-healthy lives. Our organization unites cardiovascular disease foundations and societies, academic centres and primary care groups, hospitals and clinics, cardiologists, public health professionals and advocates, professional societies, ministries of health and patient support organizations: a global community dedicated to the treatment, prevention and control of CVD. We are striving for a 25% reduction by 2025 in premature deaths from CVD around the world, in line with the WHO goal to reduce premature deaths from Non-Communicable diseases by 25% by 2025.
