Global Coalition for Circulatory Health


Written on Wednesday, 13 September 2017 12:01

At the 2nd Global Summit on Circulatory Health, held in Singapore from 12-13 July this year, a consensus emerged among participants supporting the need for a partnership to improve coordination and collective action among international, regional and national organizations working in the field of circulatory health for our shared ambition of a 25% reduction in premature mortality from circulatory disease by 2025.

With this overall objective in mind, the World Heart Federation will form a Global Coalition for Circulatory Health open to all professional organizations with a role in prevention and control of heart attacks, strokes and other circulatory diseases.

Among the key objectives of the Global Coalition will be to:

• Enhance global advocacy for better prevention and control of heart disease and stroke by investing in collective advocacy.

• With our national members, lobby governments to develop strong and sustainable national action plans for heart disease and stroke, through initiatives such as the Global HEARTS technical package.

• Communicate with one voice through a collective call to action in the lead-up to the UN High-level Meeting on Noncommunicable Diseases in 2018.

 

Please refer to the attached report, being the dratt outcomes paper of the Summit. It will be published in full in Global Heart, the journal of WHF. At the invitation of Richard Horton, Editor of The Lancet, a short report will also appear in The Lancet.
