The ESC is delighted to announce the recent affiliation of six cardiac societies - three in South America and three in the Middle East:       

  • Brazilian Society of Cardiology
  • Chilean Society of Cardiology and Cardiovascular Surgery
  • Uruguayan Society of Cardiology
  • Iraqi Cardiothoracic Society
  • Jordan Cardiac Society
  • Saudi Heart Association

    The affiliation of these societies was validated by the ESC General Assembly 1 September during the ESC Congress 2009 in Barcelona, Spain, and we are very pleased to be able to welcome them in the ESC Family.

    34 representatives of the now 28 Affiliated Societies of the ESC attended a meeting with the ESC Board representation in Barcelona, during which the six new members signed a Memorandum of Understanding with ESC President, Prof. Roberto Ferrari (download slides from the meeting in pdf format here)
