ESC Advocacy is actively involving cities to take concrete steps to tackle cardiovascular diseases (CVD) in urban areas, while raising heart health on the political agenda.
During ESC Congress 2019 together with World Congress of Cardiology, the ESC, in partnership with the French Society of Cardiology and the City of Paris, organised the first Heart Healthy Cities Round Table.
In consideration of growing urban populations worldwide, together with increasing evidence linking air/noise pollution and lifestyle to CVD, ESC Advocacy wants to ensure that concrete steps are taken to tackle heart disease in urban areas.
The ESC is engaged in a constant dialogue with local, national and EU decision-makers to promote evidence-based policies which support cardiovascular health and ensure access to the best care for all citizens.
The Heart Healthy Cities Round Table is bringing together scientists and city representatives to raise awareness, while identifying and supporting implementation of effective measures to promote healthier urban environments.
Our intention is for the Heart Healthy Cities initiative to become a rolling event that takes place annually during ESC Congress.
