Country of the month

Regular reports written by cardiovascular prevention experts from ESC member countries

The EACPR publishes CVD prevention reports, prepared by National CVD Prevention Coordinators, to facilitate the sharing of best practice and inspire health professionals in the field of preventive cardiology.


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. 

August 2015 countries of the month: Greece and Italy
