Heart Failure Awareness Days are held every year in early May (depending on the country). National Heart Failure Societies and Working Groups are encouraged to organise events to raise awareness about the importance of recognising Heart Failure, getting an accurate diagnosis and receiving optimal treatment.
Due to the consistant high quality of their Awareness Days programme, Germany was awarded the first Gold Award for Heart Failure Awareness during the Inaugural Ceremony of Heart Failure 2016 in Florence. Subsequently, Lithuania received the Gold Award in 2017 during the Inaugural Ceremony of Heart Failure 2017 in Paris.
Each country can participate in an award for the best programme. 5 winning national heart failure societies receive 5000 Euros from the HFA and certificates at the HFA Summit in October
