OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
In Europe today, children born with congenital malformation do not have equal access to appropriate care and, in some cases, the range of disparity is significant. To help remedy this situation, the European Society of Cardiology supports the European Heart for Children, a project initiated by Claudia Florio Ferrari.
European Heart for Children (EHC) is an international humanitarian organisation (Fonds de dotation).
Although it falls under the umbrella of the European Society of Cardiology, one of the largest scientific societies in the world, it is an independent entity and acts in accordance with the rules set by the EHC Board.
The mission of the EHC is to promote knowledge and treatment of congenital heart disease (CHD) and related disorders in children and young adults in the European Society of Cardiology member countries and beyond.
To reach its mission, EHC has developed a training grant programme for promising healthcare professionals in those countries where further medical education is sub-optimal. Training of local doctors and nurses is fundamental for the development of stronger and self-sufficient healthcare systems in those countries where EHC is active.
Another key factor to achieve its goal is to support medical missions carried out by European medical teams. During each mission, up to 250 children are evaluated to establish the urgency and seriousness of each case. The most severe cases immediately undergo surgical or interventional treatments.
