OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
The United Nations and the World Health Organization (WHO) have set an ambitious target for us all: to reduce premature mortality from non-communicable diseases - most notably cardiovascular diseases - by 25% by the year 2025.
A global goal calls for global cooperation, and we need to learn from each other on how best to help our patients – those with established cardiovascular disease and those at high risk of developing cardiovascular disease – to achieve longer and healthier lives. To learn how an alliance of cardiologists, nurses and allied professionals can contribute to this target through improved preventive and rehabilitative care for all patients around the world, be sure to attend the Global Alliance for CVD Prevention in Clinical Practice symposium on Sunday 1st September. Representatives from World Health Organization, World Heart Federation, ESC and EACPR will discuss their role in this ambitious plan, while Susanne Logstrup , Director of the European Heart Network, will give a perspective on lobbying policy makers. Example of one nation's steps to deliver cardiovascular disease prevention in clinical practice will be given by Prof. Glaucia Moraes, on behalf of the Brazilian Society of Cardiology. “This forum addresses critical considerations related to the development of global alliances focusing on the prevention of cardiovascular diseases which are now the leading cause of death worldwide. Our success in achieving the goal of 25% reduction in premature mortality from CVD by the year 2025 – 25 x 25 – will depend upon our ability to work together and implement programs on a global level. This is high priority for the World Heart Federation and its members.”Sidney C. Smith, Jr. MD FACC FAHA FESC, Past-President of the World Heart Federation.
