Policy dialogue guide

This guide is among the tools developed to support the implementation of the World Heart Federation’s (WHF) Roadmap to improve cardiovascular health. This guide provides step-by-step guidance to organise effective policy dialogues, building on the situational analysis in countries.

The Roadmap process includes undertaking situation analyses in countries (consisting of health system appraisals and mapping of policies, stakeholders and assets), which partners undertake to identify the roadblocks to implementing the priority interventions of secondary prevention, hypertension or tobacco control to address cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and their risk factors. The process further recommends policy dialogues, which build on in-country analysis to facilitate policy changes.
