Global Heart Hub

The Global Heart Hub is the first global non-profit organisation established to provide a voice for those affected by cardiovascular disease. This alliance of heart patient organisations, aims to create a unified global voice for those living with or affected by heart disease.

The Global Heart Hub's mission is to raise awareness of heart disease and the challenges it presents in everyday life. The Global Heart Hub is a platform for heart patient organisations to share their views, learn from each other’s best practice, unite on common advocacy goals, and share resources. We aim to increase awareness and understanding of the many heart conditions that exist, improve patient outcomes, enhance quality of life, and optimise longevity and healthy ageing.

Heart Valve Voice and the rest of the Hub members are working hard to provide the most up to date information on COVID-19 for valve disease patients around the world.
