Ok, got it
Heart Failure Awareness Days are held every year in early May (depending on the country). Join your National Heart Failure Societies and Working Groups to organise events to raise awareness about the importance of recognising heart failure symptoms early, getting an accurate diagnosis and receiving optimal treatment.
Following the spread of the novel coronavirus, the growing restrictions on the movement of patients and physicians and the limited availability of healthcare professionals, we have concluded that Heart Failure Awareness Days scheduled for May 4–10, 2020 will not take place as planned. The HFA Board considers this to be the only logical decision in view of the current situation. We would like to assure you of our continued support during these difficult days. Thank you for your understanding,
Prof. Petar M. SeferovićPresident of the Heart Failure Association
Prof. Yuri LopatinCoordinator of the National Heart Failure Societies/Working Groups
Reports from Heart Failure Awareness Days 2019
Each country can participate in an award for the best programme. Winning national heart failure societies receive prize money from the HFA and certificates at the HFA Summit in October. Winning programme (all programmes are judged together in one country) show outstanding commitment to the event and illustrate the best preparation and organisation in stated categories (see above).
If you want to get involved, contact the HFA: firstname.lastname@example.org or your Heart Failure Working Group
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.
