Regular reports written by cardiovascular prevention experts from ESC member countries

The EAPC publishes CVD prevention reports, prepared by National CVD Prevention Coordinators, to facilitate the sharing of best practice and inspire health professionals in the field of preventive cardiology.

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 EAPC Prevention Implementation Committee (PIC) initiative, lead by Prof. Joep Perk.
