What we’ve achieved
HPP initiated the Thought Leadership Forum on Cardiovascular Disease in 2022. The project is advised by a multidisciplinary group of senior stakeholders seeking to ignite greater political urgency in CVD. It was established to stimulate new strategic debates in CVD to ultimately accelerate policy leadership and health system transformation in the societal interest.
This programme of work has been initiated with the publication of a discussion paper, Making the case for political urgency in cardiovascular disease. The paper provides the context and rationale for this work and a public statement of intent. It focuses on four types of CVD: atherosclerotic CVD, atrial fibrillation, heart failure and heart valve disease.
In July 2022, we published a think piece, Finding inspiration within prominent national cardiovascular disease plans, aiming to establish a clearer picture of existing strategic responses to CVD by national governments. We identified nine prominent examples of national CVD plans and explored the common themes within them, highlighting areas of inspiration.
Our next piece of work will be a second think piece in Autumn 2022, exploring the linkages between CVD and wider societal goals.
