Engaging 30 partner organisations from across Europe, the EuroHeart II (European Heart Health Strategy II) project analysed the latest figures and trends on cardiovascular diseases (CVD), in order to identify and share the most effective ways and policies for preventing these diseases.
The objectives of EuroHeart are to strengthen cross-sector cooperation; obtain comprehensive comparable information on policies and actions on cardiovascular health promotion and CVD prevention; improve awareness, diagnosis and treatment of women with CVD across Europe; and create a level playing field by introducing national versions of CVD guidelines.
