Launch of the European Alliance for Cardiovascular Health Virtual event
If COVID-19 has learnt one lesson, is that there is an urgent need for more EU coordination on health. Diseases – whether they are infectious or not – do not stop at borders. Cardiovascular diseases remain the leading cause of death in Europe, and impact 60 million people every year.
Cardiovascular diseases will directly or indirectly impact all of us at some point in our lives. Impacting people of all ages, the diseases are not always preventable, as many conditions can be inherited, caused by other chronic conditions or their treatments, or others incur due to ageing. To improve the health and quality of life of people affected by these diseases, there is a need for more. More research, more investments, more innovation, more policy.
It's time for the EU and Member States to act.
Join the founding organisations of the European Alliance for Cardiovascular Health, representatives of the European Commission, Member States and European Parliament for a virtual policy debate that will mark the launch of the Alliance and discuss policy actions to improve cardiovascular care for citizens across the EU.
