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.
