Heart Failure Policy Summit 2022

The Heart Failure Policy Summit is the only dedicated policy event for the heart failure community in Europe.

It provides a much-needed forum for collaboration and discussion between patient advocates from different sectors. The Summit aims to elevate the efforts of national-level heart failure advocates to engage decision-makers and policymakers across Europe. It supports members of our community to form relationships and learn from one another’s experiences.

Each session features experts from the heart failure and wider health advocacy communities, including high-profile clinical leaders and experienced patient advocates. We will also be joined by policymakers, past and present, who will share their perspectives on the current policy environment and opportunities for change.

Heart failure, inequality and the world stage: connecting advocates with the global policy agenda

Policymakers are increasingly conscious of issues faced by people from minority communities, women and marginalised populations. Now is the time to share knowledge and experience of the stark inequalities affecting people with heart failure. How can advocates tap into global policy agendas, activate policymakers, and create solutions to reduce the burden of heart failure among all population groups in an equitable way?
