Edwards Lifesciences Every Heartbeat Matters Product Donation Program

Edwards Lifesciences is driven by a passion to help patients. This rings true for its medical innovations, which seek to help patients live longer, healthier and more productive lives, as well as for its philanthropy focused on helping underserved patients and strengthening communities.

In 2014, Edwards launched its signature charitable initiative, Every Heartbeat Matters, and since then has impacted more than 1.7 million underserved people all around the world. In 2020, Edwards set the bar higher for direct impact to underserved patients and set a new goal…

Every Heartbeat Matters will improve the lives of 2.5 million more underserved structural heart and critical care patients by the end of 2025.

To help accomplish this goal, Edwards is partnering with MAP International to bring its products and patient care packages assembled by employees to underserved patients around the world.

This goal can only be achieved with the partnership, volunteerism and leadership of others. Will you join us?
