Global Cholesterol Action Plan
In 2022 the Global Heart Hub unveiled its Global Cholesterol Action Plan to reduce the impact of unhealthy cholesterol levels. The Global Cholesterol Action Plan follows and builds upon the World Heart Federation’s Roadmap for Cholesterol published in 2022.
In launching the Global Cholesterol Action Plan, the Global Heart Hub hopes to implement change in the way unhealthy cholesterol levels are prevented and managed at local levels to reduce atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), the leading cause of mortality worldwide and responsible for more than 15 million deaths each year. The action plan outlines four clear goals to ensure unhealthy cholesterol levels are addressed as a public health priority: build alliances, raise public awareness, activate alliances, and improve high cholesterol detection and management. The four-point plan proposes measures we can take to meet these goals and activate change in the way ASCVD is prevented and treated. Read more from our press release here
