Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the number one cause of death in Europe and ;60 million people live with cardiovascular disease in the EU, and almost 13 million new patients are diagnosed every year. There has been progress on addressing this challenge in the past, but mortality rates are far from decreasing, especially with Covid-19, and CVD continues to pose a significant burden on healthcare systems and the economy. Cardiovascular conditions present still an unmet medical need.
How can we reverse the increasing burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe? What is needed to give patients access to the treatments and innovation they need? What new ways to fund and deliver innovation to reach patients and improve health outcomes at population level?
We invite you to a debate with representatives from patients’ organisations, healthcare professionals, public authorities and industry to address these and many other questions.
The event is organised by EFPIA and the European Heart Network (EHN)
