WHF Roadmaps

The World Heart Federation created the CVD Roadmaps as a framework to help achieve a relative reduction of premature mortality caused by cardiovascular disease of 25% by 2025 (25 by 25).

Global Roadmaps have been developed by experts worldwide to identify problems and offer solutions on specific topics impacting cardiovascular mortality. The WHF Roadmaps focus on some key targets proposed by WHO, and cover specific topics – currently Secondary Prevention, Raised Blood Pressure, Tobacco Control, Rheumatic Heart disease, Atrial Fibrillation and a Cholesterol Roadmap currently being written.

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).
