Testimonials

"The key element has been that all these associations, federations, and societies interested in promoting cardiovascular health have been working together. Instead of pulling and pushing and claiming one disease deserves more attention than another, everyone has recognised that that CVD is really the essential element in all these diseases - in acute infarction, in heart failure, in diabetes, and stroke, and hypertension."
