Join us! 🌟 Let’s embark on an interstellar journey to make Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolaemia (HoFH) awareness day a resounding success.


As you may know, HoFH (Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolaemia) affects individuals from birth and significantly increases the risk of heart disease already early in life. Despite its severity and the urgency to act, HoFH remains largely underdiagnosed and misunderstood. Even more surprisingly as HoFH occurs in families affected with FH, a very common inherited high cholesterol disorder.

That's why it's crucial for us to come together to raise awareness and support those living with this condition. And for that reason, we have chosen a special day and a special slogan - Unite for HoFH Awareness: One Galaxy, One Heart!


HoFH Awareness Day 2024 launch activities are supported by grant funding from Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals, Chiesi and Ultragenyx.
