WHF invites any professional global, regional, and national civil society organizations with a role in circulatory health to register their interest in joining the Global Coalition for Circulatory Health.
The Global Coalition for Circulatory Health brings together international, regional and national stakeholders in circulatory health to drive the urgent action needed to combat heart disease and stroke, in preparation for the Third United Nations High-Level Meeting on Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs) in 2018. The signatories pledge to advocate for policies for circulatory health, develop a common implementation strategy based on evidence and develop a common language for policy makers.
