Heart Valve Voice is delighted to announce that our 2022 National Education Campaign has won a World Heart Federation Award for Creative Campaign.

Our 2022 National Education Campaign aimed to teach half a million over 65s about heart valve disease, its symptoms, and how they're detected and treated.

The campaign saw us reach millions of over 65s, with half a million people going to our website to learn about the signs and symptoms of valve disease. We also travelled across the UK, offering free heart checks to the public and teaching them about heart valve disease. 

The World Heart Federation award recognises the ambition of the campaign, its creativity, and its impact on cardiovascular health in the UK.

Heart Valve Voice Executive Director, Wil Woan, said: "I'm incredibly proud to see our Education Campaign recognised with this prestigious award. Huge credit must go to the team, who worked tirelessly on this campaign throughout the year, and whose ambition and dedication to helping others drove the campaign forward."

During the campaign, half a million over 65s  were directed to our landing page. At the end, they were asked to complete a short questionnaire. 98% correctly identified the symptoms of heart valve disease, and 96% knew what to do if they or anyone they knew experienced them.

This year, we're committing to increase that number to 1 million people!
