New report highlights obesity now a critical global issue

According to a recent McKinsey report obesity is now a critical global issue: nearly 30 percent of the global population is overweight or obese, nearly two and a half times the number of those who are undernourished.

Challenges in prevention: Reports from Lebanon and Egypt

“Is there any place for preventive cardiology in a country that has recently received 1, 5 million refugees? And did you know that there is a country where less than 1% of the women are regular smokers?  Read the reports from Lebanon and Egypt on the challenges in prevention in those countries!”

Joep Perk, EACPR Prevention Implementation Committee Chair

Mission: To promote the essential knowledge of population prevention science among cardiologists, other clinicians, health care professionals and scientists, to stress their role in the community context and to improve their understanding of the importance of the epidemiology and primary prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
 
This section fits well within the Association as an extension of cardiac rehabilitation. A network already exists and sports cardiology is recognized as a sub-speciality. It is connected with primary and secondary prevention.
 
Mission: to promote and facilitate high-quality research and education related to exercise, basic and translational science in the fields of cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation and sports cardiology, bringing together scientists from a broad range of disciplines.
 
Cardiac Rehabilitation is a secondary prevention programme, with exercise as the cornerstone of a comprehensive intervention which includes an educational programme, risk factors control and the patient’s voluntarily adoption of a healthy lifestyle to be kept for lifetime.
