The European Heart Network (EHN) is a Brussels-based alliance of heart foundations and cardiovascular patients’ organisations throughout Europe, with member organisations in 25 countries.
The EHN plays a leading role in the prevention and reduction of cardiovascular diseases, in particular heart disease and stroke, through advocacy, networking, capacity-building and patient support, so that they are no longer a major cause of premature death and disability throughout Europe.
Through its membership of the World Heart Federation, EHN is also active in the creation of a wider international heart network whose aim is to advance the cause of cardiovascular health promotion world-wide.
EHN dedicates itself to:
Influencing European policy makers in favour of a heart-healthy lifestyle
Creating and nurturing ties between organisations concerned with heart health promotion and cardiovascular disease prevention
Gathering and disseminating information relevant to heart health promotion and cardiovascular disease prevention
Strengthening our membership capacity
