World Heart Day resonates with recent experts' findings on CVD and EU institutions' determination to promote heart health
Date:9/24/2009

Slovenia have five policies in place related to cardiovascular health promotion, CHD, hypertension, stroke and hyperlipidaemia; Greece had just one.

  • Two countries reported no national guidelines within the broad context of cardiovascular disease (Denmark and Greece).

I am sure that the incoming European Commission will want to build on its collaboration with the new European Parliament on this important issue", she says.

    Mr Dirk Sterckx, Belgian MEP and co-chair of the MEP Heart Group supports this action, saying: "Nobody can deny that cardiovascular diseases present a very heavy burden in all EU member states.
