Heart healthy children with UEFA


As an advocate of putting cardiovascular disease and its risk factors on the global health agenda, the World Heart Federation strongly supports initiatives addressing obesity, healthy diet and physical activity.

In order to sustain its advocacy activities on these topics, the World Heart Federation has developed a partnership with UEFA in order to attain the common goal of promoting physical activity, healthy diets and habits and reducing obesity and smoking.


WHF is UEFA’s health partner. The long-term partnership promotes heart-healthy behaviours with a focus on healthy diet, physical activity and tobacco control.
