What We Do

The African Heart Network (AHN) is a coalition of Heart Foundations, cardiac societies and individuals working in the field of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) prevention, reduction and treatment. AHN was founded in 2001 by African Heart Health professionals to provide a platform and a voice for civil society on CVD issues in Africa. Together with other African NGOs, AHN works to improve public health in the field of cardiovascular disease.
