Our statement of intent

Science

Science

We aim to be a scientific benchmark, recognised for our rigorous methods in the assessment of any health project or programme promoted by the foundation.

Health

Health

We promote health as a priority, affecting the risk factors that reduce cardiovascular disease and improve quality of life.
