WHF Roadmap for Cholesterol – Update

Friday, October 14, 2022, the World Heart Federation (WHF) is launched, with the support of Amgen and Novartis, a new Roadmap aimed at reducing the global burden of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, which is responsible for 85% of the 18.6 million cardiovascular disease-related deaths worldwide every year.

Atherosclerosis is a silent condition caused by high cholesterol that develops throughout a person’s lifespan and can lead to sudden death. The new WHF Roadmap for Cholesterol, which builds on the previous 2017 edition, shows how targeting cholesterol can help reduce atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and save lives.
