Official Support to the European Heart Health Charter

We, the undersigned, officially endorse the European Heart Health Charter.

  • Because cardiovascular disease remains the main cause of death in Europe,
  • Because it aims at making both the fight against cardiovascular disease and its prevention, one of the priorities of the policies of public health within the European Union,
  • Because it addresses risk factors and aims at mobilising cross sector cooperation and broad support for Cardiovascular Health promotion and cardiovascular disease prevention:

We will work in close collaboration with all signatories, at the European and National levels, within the profession and through all potential partners, political as well as Non Governmental Organisations, to promote strongly a future Heart Healthier Europe.

  • European Society of Cardiology
  • European Heart Network,
