Addressing Global Health

The Campaign for the Future will take critical steps towards reversing negative global trends in cardiovascular health:

diversity
  • Education: A global cardiovascular and non-communicable disease prevention and treatment program targeted at front line health workers in the developing world
  • Quality Improvement: The Global Heart Attack Treatment Initiative will drive guideline and evidence-based solutions for cardiovascular care across low- and middle-income countries
  • Innovation: Pilot initiatives focused on health literacy, remote monitoring and telemedicine, and artificial intelligence will address inequities in health care by leapfrogging infrastructure challenges
Your Greatest Challenges. Required Shared Solutions.
