About Us

The International Heart Hub (iHHub) is the first global non-profit organisation that brings together and supports the creation of patient groups from every country in the world to raise awareness of heart disease and improve lives.

What Is Heart Disease?

Cardiovascular disease (CVDs) are a group of disorders of the heart and blood vessels

Why We Need To

Act Now

CVDs are the number 1 cause of death globally: more people die annually from CVDs than from any other cause.

An estimated 17.5 million people died from CVDs in 2012, representing 31% of all global deaths. Of these deaths, an estimated 7.4 million were due to coronary heart disease and 6.7 million were due to stroke.

Over three quarters of CVD deaths take place in low- and middle-income countries.

Out of the 16 million deaths under the age of 70 due to noncommunicable diseases, 82% are in low and middle income countries and 37% are caused by CVDs.
