Prevention in your Country

National CVD Prevention Coordinators and the "Country of the Month" initative

National CVD Prevention Coordinators (NCPC)

59 NCPCs have been appointed by the Presidents of National Cardiac Societies in ESC member countries, with the role to facilitate the endorsement, adaptation, translation and publication of the European Guidelines on CVD Prevention... View the NCPC page.

Country of the Month



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. 

April 2014 countries of the month: Estonia and Sweden

Previous country reports:
Israel and Turkey (Oct 2013)
Germany and Iceland (Dec 2013)
