The World Heart Federation exists to prevent and control heart disease through awareness campaigns and action, with a focus on low and middle income countries.
The organisation aims to build global commitment to addressing cardiovascular health at the policy level, generate and share ideas, share best practice, advance scientific knowledge and promote knowledge transfer to tackle cardiovascular disease.
The Rheumatic Heart Disease Network (RHDnet), run by the World Heart Federation, is a website developed primarily for clinicians, health practitioners and policy-makers in countries where the disease is still common. Its purpose is to promote rheumatic heart disease control through best practice including registration of people with disease and secondary prevention of rheumatic fever.
The site contains information about rheumatic fever and rheumatic heart disease for health professionals, families and communities.
