Congratulations on joining our growing global community
of experts who act to positively impact the CVD agenda
The vision of the Emerging Leaders Programme is to create a global cadre of experts who will contribute to improving global cardiovascular health and to reducing the burden of cardiovascular diseases.
You can learn more about World Heart Federation Emerging Leaders as well as hear from current participants and faculty from this YouTube video.
The stated goal of the WHF is to reduce premature CVD death globally by at least 25% by 2025 in alignment with the WHO target of a 25% reduction in premature NCD mortality in the same timeframe.
To realize this potential, we aim to leverage the capacity, scope, and mission of the World Heart Federation to develop global capacity among Emerging Leaders from 50 to 100 countries who are actively working in CVD prevention and control. These individuals will have developed expertise in evaluation of health systems; identification of barriers and facilitators for implementation of evidence based prevention, and treatments for CVD; development of evidence-based policy research; and activism by influencing critical stakeholders including policymakers, legislators, and media.
