Increasing consciousness and access to treatment, reducing the burden of cardiovascular diseases across Europe

Starting from the second half of 2019, on NCDs ACN has decided to increase the awareness of a growing number of patients’ rights associations on the importance of the prevention and management of pathologies correlated to cardiovascular protection, as well as on the new available therapeutic options that exist today. To do so, it was launched a multi-annual EU project with the aim of increasing consciousness on correct lifestyles and access to treatment, collecting good practices and reducing the burden of cardiovascular diseases across Europe.

The initiative is in line with our “Position paper on prevention, innovation and a new health governance for the new EU Institutions”, drafted in May 2019 by ACN with the endorsement of 18 associations. To download the document, click here.
