The Initiative

Heart disease and stroke are two of the leading causes of death in the United States. Million Hearts™ brings together communities, health systems, nonprofit organizations, federal agencies, and private-sector partners from across the country to fight heart disease and stroke.


Million Hearts™ is a national initiative that was launched by the Department of Health and Human Services in September 2011 to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes over five years.

Achieving Goals

Million Hearts™ will achieve its goal by reducing the number of people who need treatment and by improving the ABCS for those who do.


Partners from across the public and private health sectors will support Million Hearts™ through a wide range of activities.
