25 by 25

In 2012, The World Heart Federation launched its ‘25 by 25’ campaign to reduce premature mortality from CVD by 25% by the year 2025. 

The ’25 by 25’ campaign is in line with existing WHO commitments to reduce overall mortality from the four major NCDs – CVD, diabetes, cancers and lung diseases – by 25% by 2025. 

To support the broad ’25 by 25’ vision for NCDs, the World Health Organization launched a set of targets in 2014. These targets, seen on the right and found in the Global Monitoring Framework, all have a direct impact on CVD. 

You can see how the World Heart Federation’s ’25 by 25’ campaign supports the WHO commitments below. 

In 2015, the 193 Member States of the United Nations adopted Agenda 2030 for sustainable development. This global agenda builds on the WHO and WHF’s ‘25 by 25’ campaigns, and aims for a 30% reduction in NCD mortality by 2030.
