Involving patients is critical to reducing the economic, social and emotional burden of heart failure and improves the lives of patients with the condition everywhere.
Patients are often diagnosed late, underdiagnosed, and are frequently undertreated or inadequately treated for the condition. This needs to change. People with heart failure deserve a higher quality of care and access to recognised gold standard treatments.
We are committed to building a global network of patient organisations that will provide support and improve patient outcomes.
Local patient organisations play a vital role in driving tangible change. From a global level, we can define and clarify the severity of the problem but we cannot do this alone. We need to gather local insights and collaborate with the patient, medical and political communities around the world.
