The World Heart Federation convened experts to research and write a series of global Roadmaps on specific topics impacting premature CVD mortality.
WHF Roadmaps identify roadblocks and suggest potential solutions on the way to 25 by 25. Covering a large range of potential issues with a focus on health system and policies, the global Roadmaps translate existing knowledge of best practice, barriers and solutions into practical strategies for improving cardiovascular health.
At the national and regional level, global Roadmaps can serve as models for countries to develop their own roadmap, and create or update their national non-communicable disease (NCD) action plans.
We would like to thank our members organizations for their valuable comments and contribution to the Roadmaps’ content.
WHF Roadmap for Reducing Cardiovascular Morbidity & Mortality through Prevention & Control of RHDWorldwide RHD 1 0
WHF Roadmap for Non-Valvular Atrial FibrillationWorldwide Atrial Fibrillation 1 0
WHF has developed this roadmap with experts and its members to help identify the roadblocks and solutions. Whilst AF is not represented by a specific 25by25 target, it is a significant problem, in that it is often undiagnosed, and as a result a huge contributor to CVD premature mortality.Download View More Details
WHF Roadmap for Reducing Cardiovascular Mortality through Tobacco ControlWorldwide Tobacco Control 3 0
WHF Roadmap to the Management and Control of Raised Blood PressureWorldwide Raised Blood Pressure 1 0
WHF has developed this roadmap on Raised Blood Pressure with experts and its members to focus on and help identify the roadblocks to treating hypertension, which are currently preventing the 25by25 targets being achieved. This roadmap offers evidence based solutions which may be applicable to achieving an improved management of hypertension.Download View More Details
WHF Roadmap for Secondary Prevention of Cardiovascular DiseaseWorldwide Secondary Prevention 2 0
WHF developed the roadmap on Secondary Prevention with experts and its members to help identify the roadblocks to raising the uptake of secondary prevention interventions which would aid in reaching the 25by25 targets. The roadmap proposes potential solutions to overcoming barriers at different health systems levels.Download View More Details
