The World Heart Federation Emerging Leaders 2019

The 2019 cohort marks the sixth year of the programme and will focus on heart failure. Previous cohorts have focused on secondary prevention of cardiovascular diseases, raised blood pressure, tobacco prevention and control, essential medicines, and stroke.

The World Heart Federation aims to reach as many potential candidates as possible on a global basis. Candidates from academia, civil service, private industry and cardiovascular medicine are encouraged to apply. Candidates may be affiliated with a member organization of the World Heart Federation, but this is not mandatory. All Emerging Leaders participants will be required to participate in a five-day think tank seminar and collaborative group work based on proposals developed during the seminar with seed funding support from the World Heart Federation from meritorious applications.

The selection committee  will look for candidates to demonstrate their passion for improving CVD healthcare, willingness to participate in collaborative group work, and desire for making a difference at the grassroots level and beyond.
