WHF Roadmaps

The World Heart Federation is currently working on three CVD Roadmaps dedicated to secondary prevention, tobacco control and raised blood pressure.

The Roadmaps are designed to translate existing knowledge of best practices, barriers, and solutions into practical strategies for improved cardiovascular health. They serve as models so countries can meet their commitments to develop or update national non-communicable disease plans using the framework provided by the World Health Organization’s Global Action Plan (GAP).

Via Global Heart World Heart Federation shares the first three roadmaps which form an essential component of the federation's strategy to address cardiovascular disease. These Roadmaps focus on providing healthcare professionals and policymakers across the world with tools and solutions to manage the secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and reduce premature death globally. The roadmap will help drive the WHO target of reducing heart attack and stroke by 25% by 2025 by providing practical tools to improve healthcare and prevent CVD in low, middle and high-income countries.
