Members

The Heart Failure Policy Network’s work is driven by its members, including patient and clinical experts from Europe and beyond.

Membership is open to individuals and organisations who support our mission to ensure everyone with heart failure in Europe has access to best-practice healthcare.

Membership is voluntary, and all members generously contribute their time and expertise for free. You can read more about the individuals who make up our Steering Committee, our members, supporting organisations, and the Secretariat below.

To learn more about becoming a member, email us at info@hfpolicynetwork.com 

To read more about the different categories of membership you can refer to the Terms of Reference on our Governance page.
