Global Heart Hub is honoured and delighted to be shortlisted for the Think Global Awards Year Five in the Life Sciences category with our 2021 Heart Valve Disease Awareness Campaign!

Global Heart Hub’s 2021 Heart Valve Disease Awareness Week aimed to improve the diagnosis, treatment and management of heart valve disease globally. The awareness week was led by the Global Heart Hub Heart Valve Disease Patient Council.

Heart valve disease has been described as ‘the next cardiac epidemic’. This campaign was important, not only to raise awareness of the disease but also to make the over 65-year-old population more aware of the symptoms so that they can seek the help they need at the right time. It is also important that clinicians provide their patients, especially those who are over the age of 65, with regular stethoscope exams as these are key to detecting heart valve disease.
