To the Editor: I note with interest the review entitled 'Heart failure in sub-Saharan Africa: A clinical approach'. It is very concerning that the only heart failure guideline published in Africa was not referenced in this review. The Heart Failure Society of South Africa (HeFSSA) is the only official heart failure society in Africa. The HeFSSA guideline was published as a modification of the European Society of Cardiology guideline that is quoted in the review, specifically to impart a 'sub-Saharan' perspective.
