The United Nations and the World Health Organization (WHO) have agreed to take concerted action to reduce mortality from non-communicable diseases by 25% by 2025. The World Heart Federation is leading a Global Task Force on CVD Prevention together with the European Society of Cardiology, European Heart Network, American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology to advocate for lifestyle and risk factor targets.

In this context the European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (EACPR) is facilitating the creation of a common platform – A Global Forum for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention in Clinical Practice - to unite the voices of regional and national professional societies for cardiovascular prevention for the benefit of all our patients.
