WHF and its Members believe in a world where cardiovascular health for everyone is a fundamental human right. Regardless of country, region, origin, race, gender, age, education and income, each human being is entitled to cardiovascular health and well-being through health promotion, access to prevention, control and management of cardiovascular disease.
Our mission is:
The vision and mission are built on five key global roles of WHF: (i) advocacy; (ii) science; (iii) capacity building; (iv) implementation and health system strengthening; and (v) building a civil society movement for access to cardiovascular health through WHF’s international leadership, member engagement at global, regional and national levels, and communication to our professions, patients and the public.
