Abstract

Highlights

  • To help achieve the goal of reducing the risk of premature mortality from noncommunicable, chronic diseases by 25% by 2025, the World Heart Federation has developed its Emerging Leaders program.
  • The Emerging Leaders program focuses on implementation science, health systems, and health policy research and action among a target of at least 100 emerging leaders over the next decade to initiate and facilitate cardiovascular disease prevention activities globally and in every region of the world.
  • We describe the rationale for and characteristics of the Emerging Leaders program, including its training objectives, methods, and future directions.
  • The Emerging Leaders program represents a major opportunity for the World Heart Federation, its member organizations, and the emerging leaders themselves to leverage their collective strengths toward achieving the ambitious, yet achievable, “25 × 25” goal through an innovative global collaborative leadership-enhancing experience.
