About

 

You will hear from our partner experts how we strengthen awareness and preventive behavior as well as enhance health system readiness to improve heart care outcomes. 

Background information

 

Cardiovascular and coronary artery disease is on the rise in low and middle-income countries around the world. Unfortunately, health systems in many of these settings are still ill-prepared, leading to poor health outcomes among patients who suffer from acute or chronic cardiac conditions.

 

Yet there is still poor knowledge among the public about preventive behavior or recognizing and acting on symptoms that may point to heart failure. But also in high-income countries, there are disparities in heart health outcomes that may indicate that cardiology care is not equally accessible or suitably designed for the whole population.


Philips Foundation supports a range of initiatives seeking to find ways to structurally improve access to and preparedness for heart care across the board – from raising public awareness and enhancing community-level prevention and first aid to strengthening cardiology health systems and health workers’ capabilities at primary care levels and beyond.
