This website is designed to support you in your journey

World Heart Federation Emerging Leaders are an important and growing group of people who are passionate about making positive changes to the way cardiovascular disease is prevented and treated.

WHF and its members have a vision of a world where heart health for everyone is a fundamental human right and a crucial element of global health justice. We believe that there is no equity and human rights without health justice and heart health for everyone. Regardless of country, region, origin, race, gender, age, education and revenues, each human being is entitled to cardiovascular health and well-being through health promotion, access to prevention, control and management of cardiovascular disease.

The World Heart Federation Salim Yusuf Emerging Leaders Programme plays an important part in achieving our vision and mission, building a global cadre of experts who will contribute to improving global cardiovascular health and to reducing the burden of cardiovascular disease.

By participating in the Programme, these individuals who are actively working in CVD prevention and control will develop expertise in: evaluating health systems; identifying barriers and facilitators for implementation of evidence-based prevention and treatments for CVD; developing evidence-based policy research; and activism by influencing critical stakeholders including policymakers, legislators and media.

You can learn more about World Heart Federation Emerging Leaders as well as hear from current participants and faculty from this YouTube video.
