HFPN has added subtitles to a recently launched animation that aims to raise awareness of the urgent need to increase access to guideline-recommended care. The addition of subtitles in five languages – German, English, French, Italian and Spanish – make the video accessible for a wider range of audiences across Europe.

The animation highlights the importance of best-practice care for heart failure and what this could achieve for people living with the syndrome. It accompanies our recent report From guidelines to action: opportunities for change following the 2021 European Society of Cardiology heart failure guidelines, which gives an accessible overview of the key ways in which following the European Society of Cardiology guidelines can improve the lives and outcomes of people living with heart failure.

Effective, evidence-based treatments exist for heart failure – yet nearly 30% of people living with the syndrome in Europe are not receiving guideline-based care. While the availability and quality of heart failure care has improved across Europe over recent years, there remain inequalities in service provision, with many countries lacking trained healthcare professionals, reimbursement for diagnostic tests and treatment, and dedicated management programmes.

We invite the heart failure advocacy community to share the animation via your social media channels, in presentations or at events.
