OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
The ESC, together with the European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (EACPR) and the European Heart Network (EHN), need your help to make policymakers note the impact which environmental health risks such as air and noise pollution are having on CVD.
Statistics suggest that up to 90% of the European population is exposed to levels of air and noise pollution exceeding WHO standards, and that environmental factors are responsible for up to 20% of the disease burden in Europe. CVD, which kills over 4 million people in Europe each year, by far makes up the largest portion of this burden.
The Environment & the Heart campaign, in line with the Spotlight of ESC Congress 2015 calls upon congress delegates, the public and policymakers to endorse the call for action by signing post cards available at the European Heart Agency Stand (P520 ESC Plaza) and other locations around the congress centre. Virtual signatures are also possible through an online petition.
The postcards, together with the call to action, will be delivered by the ESC, EACPR and EHN leadership to the European Commissioners for Health, Environment, Climate Change and Transport in Brussels on World Heart Day – Tuesday 29 September.
