OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
Growing concern about the burden of heart failure on our society has led the Heart Failure Association to invest in the means to increase awarenes of the disease and spread information on prevention and management.
Heart Failure Awareness Days are held annually at the beginning of May. Designed to raise awareness about the importance of recognising Heart Failure, getting an accurate diagnosis and receiving optimal treatment, these days are devoted to open house clinics, televised debates, newspaper articles, press conferences, childrens' art competitions, bicycling and walkingevents in over 25 countries. More information is available
Designed by cardiologists, heart failure nurses and general practitioners, www.heartfailurematters.org is a website for patients, their families and carers. Sections on Understanding heart failure, What can your doctor do, What you can do, Living with Heart Failure, Warning signs and one for caregivers are available in English, French, Spanish, German, Dutch, Swedish, Greek, Portuguese, Russian and Arabic.
There is clear evidence that the prevalence of heart failure will rise substantially over the next 20-30 years thus increasing the economic burden of prevention and treatment on society. The HFA is working to identify gaps in the education of heart failure in different regions of the world and in the different countries.The goal of the Global Heart Failure Awareness Programme is to make sure that preventing heart failure becomes a strategic health priority for each and every country.
