The Finnish Heart Association comprises over 80 000 individual members, 19 regions, 238 local societies and the nation-wide organisations for young heart patients ( Finnish Association for Heart Children and Adults), heart or lung transplanted patients ( SYKE ry) and cardiomyopathy patients ( Karpatiat ry).
Action Plan for Promoting Finnish Heart Health for the years 2005-2011
The goal of the Finnish Heart Association is that, in 20 years' time, cardiovascular diseases will no longer be a significant health problem among working-age adults and that people experience more healthy and active years in their lives.
The actions that play the most important role in the development and treatment of cardiovascular
diseases have to be more effective to reach this goal. The Action Plan for Promoting Finnish Heart Health provides guidelines, central strategies and recommendations for actions to prevent these diseases, and by doing so, it also promotes health on the population level. The action plan is part of the Finnish Heart Plan.
