Coronavirus and EuroGUCH 2020

Dear Members of the ACHD community,

We are very sad to inform you that EuroGUCH 2020, the scientific meeting of the European Society of Cardiology Working Group on Adult Congenital Heart Disease, scheduled for 17-18 April 2020 in Leuven, is cancelled together with the pre-meeting on Thursday, 16 April.

The leadership of the ESC and the Working Group on ACHD have been closely following the COVID-19 outbreak. Increasingly severe measures are being put in place to limit the spread of the virus as physicians and hospitals deal with a pandemic.

We have discussed the situation with our partners who share the opinion that, under the current circumstances, cancelling EuroGUCH 2020 is the only responsible course of action. Your health and safety are of the greatest priority to us.

We have created an FAQ to answer your practical questions.

We wish you all the best in these difficult times and look forward to seeing you in the future.

On behalf of the ESC Working Group on ACHD Nucleus and the Conference Scientific Committee


Prof. Jolien Roos-Hesselink, Netherlands
ESC WG on ACHD Chairperson 2018-2020
