The overall objective of this initiative is to facilitate implementation of CVD prevention by providing web-based information on prevention among the ESC member states and to inspire both national coordinators and others in the field of preventive cardiology. Every other month, two countries will be highlighted, providing full reports and detailed analysis of the state of CVD prevention and rehabilitation in those countries.
This is an EACPR Prevention Implementation Committee (PIC) initiative, chaired by Prof. Joep Perk.
