Join our growing global community of experts
who act to positively impact the CVD agenda
The 2020 Emerging Leaders Programme – led by Senior Programme Adviser Dr Amitava Banerjee – will mark the seventh year of the programme and will focus on CVD & diabetes. Previous cohorts have focused on heart failure, secondary prevention of cardiovascular diseases, raised blood pressure, tobacco prevention and control, essential medicines, and stroke.
The World Heart Federation aims to reach as many potential candidates as possible on a global basis. Candidates from academia, civil society, healthcare and the private sector are all encouraged to apply. Candidates may be affiliated with a member organization of the World Heart Federation, but this is not mandatory. All Emerging Leaders participants will be required to participate in a five-day think tank seminar and collaborative group work based on proposals developed during the seminar with seed funding support from the World Heart Federation from meritorious applications.
The selection committee will look for candidates to demonstrate their passion for improving CVD healthcare, willingness to participate in collaborative group work, and desire for making a difference at the grassroots level and beyond.
