The G-CHF Registry is a prospective global cohort study of approximately 20,000-25,000 HF patients enrolled over approximately 5 years. Baseline data will be obtained on demographic and socioeconomic data, clinical and laboratory variables, co-morbidities, biomarkers, echocardiography, HF causes, medication use, management patterns, quality of life, and health systems. Six-month, 12-month, 18-month and 24-month follow-up data will be obtained to document patient outcomes and factors associated with outcomes.
A sub-study of approximately 4000 patients (a subset of the main study population) will be performed to measure frailty, cognitive and lung function, mental health, medication adherence, patient-reported barriers to care, dietary assessment, and collection of blood and urine samples for central storage and analysis.

- Mortality, by cause [ Time Frame: 2 years ]The main objective of G-CHF is to obtain reliable estimates of mortality and other non-fatal clinical outcomes in HF patients overall and in 6 global regions. Factors associated with outcomes will be explored. All outcome events will be recorded and summarized individually as rates and proportions, with two-sided confidence intervals calculated.
- Non-fatal major clinical events (both resulting in and not resulting in hospitalization) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
