The African Heart Network provides assistance to established heart foundations in African countries and advocates on a range of cardiovascular (CVD) issues. We endeavor to work with governments and civil society to mobilize action in support of the prevention and treatment of CVD in Africa. We aim to work towards the development of a collaborative and integrated approach to tackling CVDs and other lifestyle-related non-communicable diseases in Africa.
Some of the activities that we are involved in include:
Organizing workshops and meetings where experts report on heart health promotion campaigns and results of recent research.
Monitoring policy on the African Continent which has an impact on CVD.
Raising awareness on cardiovascular health through events such as World Heart Day and other Health days.
Sharing learnings and best practice in CVD prevention, detection and management.
Attending and speaking at conferences and meetings regarding CVD prevention and treatment in Africa.
Raising funds for and implementing pertinent CVD research or programmes in African countries.
