The WHF Meet & Share Forum provides a unique opportunity for experts, CEOs, influencers, managers, and leaders of foundations, societies and associations across all continents to come together and share experiences, showcase successes and discuss challenges in combating heart disease around the world.

Interactive panel discussions will be led by a diverse team of experts from different regions of the world, with participants playing an active role in the event – an exciting opportunity for foundation representatives across all continents to bring to the table their own experiences and showcase your successes and challenges.

Here’s what previous participants had to say:

“The Forum is a unique opportunity for a group of people from different backgrounds, but with similar goals, ideas and aspirations to help the world, to come together. I learned a lot and look forward to many more in the future.”

— Keith Jansen, American Heart Association

“Most of us working in the field of cardiovascular prevention have similar experiences, similar challenges. The Meet & Share Forum has been a revelation. It has opened my eyes to the opportunities that abound from networking and sharing our experiences with each other.”

— Christopher Yilgwan, Pediatric cardiologist, Nigeria

“The Meet & Share Forum gave me the opportunity to network with people who advocate for the prevention on noncommunicable diseases and heart disease. It gave me the opportunity to gain insight into the challenges and best practices in different regions.”

— Mariam Abdoh, Royal Health Awareness Society, Jordan

“The discussions are non-technical, non-medical, which makes them more accessible to civil society organizations. I found it truly inspiring, especially the success stories from other countries and other organizations. It showed me how much we can really learn from each other. I will definitely be back for the next Meet & Share Forum.”

— Esti Nurjadin, Indonesia Heart Foundation
