Million Hearts® 2027 Priorities
Million Hearts® is a national initiative to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes within 5 years. It focuses on implementing a small set of evidence-based priorities and targets that can improve cardiovascular health for all. Learn more about the initiative and explore the priority areas below to get resources to help you take action.
To help make communities strong and healthy, Million Hearts® supports strategies for decreasing tobacco use, physical inactivity, and particle pollution exposure.
Million Hearts® supports optimizing care by improving aspirin/anticoagulant use, blood pressure control, cholesterol management, and smoking cessation as well as increasing the use of cardiac rehabilitation.
Million Hearts® maintains a committed focus on specific populations experiencing inequities, including pregnant and postpartum women with hypertension, people from racial/ethnic minority groups, and people with behavioral health issues who use tobacco, who have lower incomes, or who live in rural areas or other ‘access deserts.’
