Liaison Organizations

Working collaboratively and in partnership is one of the best tools we have as we work toward achieving the established cardiovascular risk reduction and stroke reduction goal set by the World Heart Federation to reduce deaths from non-communicable diseases 25% by 2025. The massive global toll of NCDs – including CVD and stroke – deepens poverty, impedes development, threatens health systems and is a major cause of disability and health inequality.

The Global Cardiovascular Nursing Leadership Forum is proud to lead the global CVD and stroke prevention effort with participation and support from the following distinguished partners and organizations.
