CVCT is an unique think tank, experts only forum aiming at discussing important and timely CV trials and trial science issues (design, methodology, interpretation, approval and implementation). Emphasis is on interaction among highly knowledgeable experts, with as little lecturing as possible, and as much think-tank interaction as possible.
CVCT is also unique in that it assembles key global experts from multiple backgrounds, including academy, industry R&D, regulatory agencies (FDA, EMA), major journal editors, NHLBI, payers (CMS, HTA organisations) and patient representatives. CVCT enjoys support from and partnership with major learned societies in the field.
What should quality look like in a national cardiovascular plan?
CVD takes a huge toll on people’s lives and costs European countries billions of euros. CVD is Europe’s leading cause of death, accounting for 45% of all deaths in 2017. But a high proportion of these are preventable, either through addressing modifiable risk factors or improving access to high-quality care and disease management.
If we know how to prevent and manage CVD, why aren’t we doing it? There is no easy answer, but it is telling that despite the huge structural barriers to securing consistent guideline-based cardiovascular care for all who need it, political awareness of CVD appears to be low. Many national plans and strategies in this area are outdated, or lack concrete investment and implementation measures.
There have recently been signs of renewed interest in CVD. The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a huge toll on front-line care services, but has also been a wake-up call for governments to reconsider the resilience and sustainability of our health systems. We urgently need greater clarity as to what effective CVD policies might look like.
At this launch, we seek to bring original insights into how we can progress a new generation of national CVD plans, while simultaneously securing deeper political commitment to them from a wider spectrum of societal and economic agendas. This reflects the content of two new think pieces we’ve produced, which are Finding inspiration within prominent national cardiovascular disease plans (July 2022), and The heart of society – why addressing cardiovascular disease is critical to achieving wider societal goals (Sept 2022)

Heart failure, inequality and the world stage: connecting advocates with the global policy agenda
The Heart Failure Policy Summit is the only dedicated policy event for the heart failure community in Europe.
It provides a much-needed forum for collaboration and discussion between patient advocates from different sectors. The Summit aims to elevate the efforts of national-level heart failure advocates to engage decision-makers and policymakers across Europe. It supports members of our community to form relationships and learn from one another’s experiences.
Each session features experts from the heart failure and wider health advocacy communities, including high-profile clinical leaders and experienced patient advocates. We will also be joined by policymakers, past and present, who will share their perspectives on the current policy environment and opportunities for change.
Policymakers are increasingly conscious of issues faced by people from minority communities, women and marginalised populations. Now is the time to share knowledge and experience of the stark inequalities affecting people with heart failure. How can advocates tap into global policy agendas, activate policymakers, and create solutions to reduce the burden of heart failure among all population groups in an equitable way?

Hybrid Event under the Auspices of the Czech EU Presidency6th September 2022
FH Europe together with Diagnoza FH, its its Czech member, are proud to announce the upcoming meeting “FH Paediatric screening moving prevention from evidence to action: overcoming the barriers to implementation” on 6 September 2022. The meeting is an accompanying event under the auspices of the Czech Presidency of the EU 2022, which started on July 1, 2022. It will be held in the Czech Senate in Prague between 13:00 and 16:30 CET.
This European event, organized by the FH patient advocacy groups, will convene thought leaders from across different sectors. It will look beyond the technical questions about FH paediatric screening that have dominated the screening debate thus far. International experts will explore specific barriers (science, funding, healthcare systems, behaviour) which are hampering the implementation of screening and how these barriers may be overcome to secure universal implementation of inherited high cholesterol screening – a solution to beating cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and building cardiovascular health (CVH) across Europe.
To ensure that this meeting accelerates action and implementation, an output of the event will be a Prague Declaration – a clear blueprint of what is now needed to overcome barriers and implement FH paediatric screening programmes throughout Europe.

Pushing boundaries in cardiac care – An interview with Professor Fausto Pinto, President of the World Heart Federation
Published Jul 28, 2021+ Follow
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Professor Pinto, President of the World Heart Federation as well as Head of Cardiology at the Hospital de Santa Maria in Lisbon, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Lisbon, and Past President of the European Society of Cardiology.
As with most conversations of late it is not surprising COVID-19 was the first topic discussed. COVID-19 has affected each of us in different ways and although undisputedly devastating, we agreed that the medical community has come far and that these advances are here to stay. Professor Pinto said rather poignantly, “in difficult times we should try to transform the negative things and find opportunities to deal with some of the issues we have to face.” One such opportunity is presented by the huge technological developments in ‘telemedicine’.
Telemedicine or telehealth refers to the delivery of medical services to patients remotely. In the 21st century, the most common methods are via telephone or more advanced digital platforms with live video.
I agree with Professor Pinto that although these solutions already existed, the pandemicgave us opportunities to rethink some of the models that we are used to. Necessity drove the uptake of digital solutions much more widely and effectively. Continuing to deepen the use of telemedicine will be crucial – we can look to expand its scope to awareness raising and increasing patient access to medical care both during and beyond the pandemic.
We also discussed multidisciplinary care, a topic close to my heart. Professor Pinto commented “the profile of the patient that we see today is different from the one we used to see 10-20 years ago” – the patients are more complex, with more comorbidities and interactions between different organs or systems. Consequently new “subspecialities” are arising to manage the cardio-renal axis, brain-heart axis and metabolic syndrome, all of which put a higher demand on physicians. Despite the recognised connectivity of health conditions, multidisciplinary cooperation is one of the biggest challenges for the medical community today.
Professor Pinto believes that using multidisciplinary teams and the integration of different specialist fields are essential for good clinical practice, and for the improvement of care of highly comorbid conditions. In order to do this effectively, the organisational structure needs to change to allow these communication silos to be broken down, something the World Heart Federation is actively researching.
Regarding the longer-term outlook for cardiovascular medicine, I asked what changes he personally hopes to see for patients. Professor Pinto said that in the last 20 years, “the decline in mortality in all the medical cardiac conditions has been huge, but at the same time the prevalence of disease has been increasing.” He believes that the shift in focus needs to be on improving prevention through addressing disease risk factors.
“80% of CV diseases are preventable, which is amazing…I would love to see in 10 years’ time the reduction in the prevalence of disease.”
The second big shift Professor Pinto foresees in the next 10 years is an increased personalisation of medicine: “When we treat the patient today, we are not 100% sure what’s going to happen…and that’s something we need to improve”. His view is that the better the knowledge about disease mechanisms, the more accurately and effectively we can diagnose, treat, develop new treatments and prevent diseases.
Professor Pinto has fantastic insight and understanding into the whole cardiovascular landscape, working in a global capacity leading the World Heart Federation and in his previous role as President of the European Society of Cardiology, and directly with patients from his hospital in Lisbon. As a physician and scientist in the field of cardiovascular medicine, I was looking forward to this discussion and it has confirmed many of my views on the evolution of cardiovascular care.

Heath Data Governance Summit
30 June 2021
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the world’s biggest killer, claiming 18.5 million deaths every year. Across the developed and developing world, preventing, and managing heart disease remains a major challenge. More worryingly, the COVID-19 pandemic has made people living with CVD even more vulnerable and has put even more barriers to their access to care.
Yet, in every crisis there is an opportunity to start afresh with new thinking. Devastating as it has been globally and for people living with CVD, the pandemic made clear the importance of health data in navigating complexity and emergencies. Data does not live in a vacuum, however, nor does it speak for itself. We need skills, understanding, and governance to make it meaningful and impactful for heart health, especially in the post-COVID world when we expect a tsunami of CVD.
To that end, the World Heart Federation (WHF) is developing the World Heart Observatory as its contribution to the data-driven future of the cardiovascular and wider health community. The Observatory will collate and curate multiple CVD data initiatives, including from WHO, the Global Burden of Disease, and from the WHF national society members, into actionable knowledge for cardiologists, patient organizations, health advocates, researchers, and industry. Its added value lies in identifying gaps and research needs, building capacity in data curation, analysis, and dissemination, and providing a debate forum in relation to global CVD data. The Observatory’s open-access online platform will be launched by the end of 2021.
Data governance will be at the core of the Observatory’s work, partnerships, and impact. We, therefore, welcome the opportunity to participate in and support WHO’s Health Data Governance Summit as the forum for greater international collaboration on data governance and a platform to encourage consensus around health data as a global public good.
The World Heart Federation is an umbrella organization, in official relations with the World Health Organization, representing the entire cardiovascular community through its +200 Members in more than 100 countries. Since 2018, WHF has been making digital health and health data one of its key areas of work across its programmes, publications, events, and campaigns. Learn more about WHF and the impact it is making at https://world-heart-federation.org/.

Host of the Webinar USE ♥ TO ACT NOW ON ANGINA
|Angina is a serious medical condition that affects more than 100 million people globally. It can have a huge impact on the quality of life of patients, with consequences including disability, job loss, and depression. As angina manifests in a variety of ways, the symptoms can be difficult to recognize, and often risk being attributed to stress, menopause, or digestive issues. Knowing how to detect angina early is crucial, and this event will serve to unite both health professional and patient perspectives so that the warning signs of angina are not missed. The webinar will leverage learnings from the prolonged COVID-19 pandemic, emphasizing how now, more than ever, it is necessary to continue to focus on heart health and that consulting your doctor promptly is key to positive health outcomes. |

In addition to the direct health risks of the COVID-19, the indirect effects have also severely disrupted access to basic health services that prevent, diagnose, and treat patients with noncommunicable diseases. Every year, NCDs kill 41 million people — making up 71% of all deaths globally. The majority of these deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries, where health systems often have limited capacity and resources for health and care.
We’re now facing a syndemic — the convergence of several epidemics — with individuals around the globe facing severe disruption to care, preventive screenings, and postponed surgeries. It has also created a ticking time bomb when it comes to cardiovascular health. At the height of the crisis, more than half of the 155 countries surveyed by the World Health Organization reported partially or completely disrupted services for hypertension treatment, with 31% of cardiovascular emergencies disrupted

Esta conferência pretende efetuar um diagnóstico da cidade ao nível das políticas ambientais, avaliar o impacto do ambiente urbano na saúde, no bem-estar da população e na economia da cidade.
São também analisados os efeitos nocivos na saúde induzidos e acelerados por fatores de contaminação ambiental (epidemias e pandemias), procurando reduzir a sua incidência, prevenir novas ameaças e reforçar a ação neste domínio, dando especial atenção aos grupos mais vulneráveis.
A conferência é para cidadãos, profissionais e estudantes dos mais variados setores de atividade que pretendam consolidar os seus conhecimentos sobre os efeitos do ambiente urbano na saúde.
Estima-se que 54% da população mundial vive em áreas urbanas, prevendo-se que em 2050 esta percentagem seja de 66%. Um crescimento exponencial que coloca vários desafios às cidades.
A CCDR LVT – Comissão de Coordenação e Desenvolvimento Regional de Lisboa e Vale do Tejo terá como uma das oradoras na Conferência: Sandra Mesquita | Monitorização e avaliação da qualidade do ar em Lisboa.
