The World Heart Federation (WHF) has been advocating globally for stronger legislation and policy regarding cardiovascular disease (CVD) for many years. Now, as focus shifts from global to national progress, we call on members and colleagues to advocate for greater action on CVD in your local settings.
This ‘Road to 2018 Toolkit’ provides World Heart Federation members with information and specific, practical tools to support national CVD advocacy, especially around the United Nations High-Level Meeting on NCDs in 2018 (HLM 2018).
