The latest advocacy briefing in our From guidelines to action series highlights the opportunities for heart failure advocates to improve care in Germany.

Based on extensive research and expert interviews, the briefing recommends specific actions, including:

Heart failure is more prevalent in Germany than in other European countries. There is a need to create a common national vision for heart failure – and cardiovascular health more broadly – to improve access to best-practice care, diagnosis and prevention.

This briefing is the fourth and final in our From guidelines to action series, which aims to equip national advocates with a targeted analysis of the opportunities available in their countries, along with specific actions they can take to change the narrative in their regions. All of the actions are supported by successful examples from a number of health interventions and interviews with national heart failure experts. The German briefing follows reports on France, Italy and Spain.
