Shaping policy & regulation



Advocacy is taken to include all of the ESC’s external communications, alliances, and relationship management activities.

The overall purpose of the Advocacy Committee is to provide a platform to define priorities and design and implement advocacy activities to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in line with the ESC Strategic Plan.

In particular, the work of the ESC Advocacy Committee aims to shape policy to advance CVD research, ensure high quality and safe CVD care, and reduce preventable deaths from CVD.

Within this framework, the EU Regulatory Affairs Committee on Medical Devices is specifically set up to provide expert advice throughout the EU regulatory process to ensure optimal safety and efficacy of CVD interventions.

In this section, you will find more details on the ESC Advocacy activities.
