Cardiovascular disease is responsible for a quarter of all deaths in the UK, which includes developed conditions such as coronary heart disease and stroke, but also inherited genetic diseases. The BHF funds pioneering research which is vital for the prevention and treatment of heart disease. Read more about the impact of research funded by BHF on heart failure since the 1960s.
