Home > About Us > Our Shared Mission

Everyone, everywhere, should have the chance to lead a heart-healthy life

At the World Heart Federation, we believe that everyone, regardless of geography or socio-economic status deserves equal access to a health-enabling environment, health information, treatment and care so that all people across the globe can lead heart-healthy lives.

Our mission and ambition is, by 2025, to drive the World Health Organization (WHO) target for non-communicable disease mortality reduction by reducing premature deaths from cardiovascular disease (CVD) by at least 25%.

25% by 2025

CVD premature mortality reduction target

We cannot achieve this alone

By uniting our 200+ member organizations around the globe, we are able to lead the fight against CVD, including heart disease and stroke. We recognize that only be working together will we achieve our ambitious mission.
