Valve For Life

Valve for Life Initiative

Goal: Improving transcatheter valve interventions (TAVI) across Europe
This initiative was launched in four pilot countries: Poland, France, Portugal and United Kingdom.

This initiative launched mid-2015 aims to improve transcatheter valve interventions (both aortic and mitral) across Europe in order to:

  • Raise awareness on the importance of valvular heart disease in the general population
  • Facilitate access to novel therapies such as transcatheter heart valve interventions
  • Raise educational standards, reduce obstacles to therapy implementation
  • Diminish age and gender discrimination in access to care.
