OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
The mission of the ESC is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe. For this purpose, it is engaged in a range of activities targeting primarily the medical profession and the medical field. There is a need, in order to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease, to engage and to pursue activities in the national and supranational - European heart health policy fields. This is the main objective and scope of the European Heart Health Institute.
Helping Member States design reforms for efficiency is pursued through a focus on cost-effective provision patterns, balanced staff/skills mix, reduction in unnecessary use of hospital care, health promotion, disease prevention, data collection, health technology assessment and cost-effective use of medicines and technologies. Another important objective is to develop policies which foster health as an investment in human capital, with a focus on enabling people to remain active, promoting good health, preventing disease, investing in the healthcare workforce, and reducing inequality in healthcare.
The European Heart Health Institute covers new ESC activities such as health economics, public policy, novel technologies, quality assessment, and health care management. It consists of five units:
