About spotlight on heart failure

Heart failure impacts 64 million people around the world, and the number is growing1 . The Spotlight On Heart Failure campaign is designed to educate and raise awareness of heart failure, encouraging people to take action for themselves, for their loved ones, and for the millions of others impacted by this devastating disease.

The campaign aims to inspire and motivate by shining a light on the deeply personal, physical, and emotional experiences of people who are at risk of developing heart failure, those who have already been diagnosed, and of the people who love and care for them.

The Spotlight on Heart Failure campaign has been developed by AstraZeneca in partnership with the World Heart Federation.
