European Heart Failure Awareness Day is designed to raise awareness of heart failure, including possible symptoms, the importance of an early and accurate diagnosis, and the need for optimal treatment. This Europe-wide initiative was developed through the combined efforts of National Societies of Heart Failure across Europe, as part of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC)/Heart Failure Association (HFA) activities.
The date of European Heart Failure Awareness Day in 2017 is Friday 5 May.
To help advertise European Heart Failure Awareness Day and your activities we have created a poster that can be readily downloaded and printed.
