EHN partnered with the World Heart Federation (WHF) in 2022 on the CVD Scorecard project for the European region. The CVD Scorecard is an advocacy tool based on the WHF Roadmap that supports stakeholders in assessing the strengths and gaps in national CVD programmes and policies to promote future targeted policy action.
EHN led the country-level data collection on cardiovascular health-related measures and indicators for five European countries: Germany, Italy, Spain, France, and the United Kingdom. As the first European countries to be completed, these five countries were selected based on the availability of epidemiological and policy data. Data was collected for over 110 indicators related to national demographics, CVD and risk factor burden, health system capacity, and national response to CVDs. Each national scorecard was transformed into an infographic seen below.
