EU and Brazilian cardiology communities join forces to tackle high CVD incidence

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Fears that Brazil’s cardiovascular disease (CVD) profile may be following that of Europe have led the country’s cardiology society (SBC) to foster closer collaboration with the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). Brazil’s CVD mortality rates are the highest in Latin America, and around double the European average. More than a half of all Brazilians aged over 50 have hypertension, and 25% of hospitalisations in this age group are CVD-related. In a bid to help address the country’s CVD situation and the healthcare needs it generates, the ESC is to deliver an educational programme at the SBC’s annual congress, which takes place in Porto Alegre during 16-19 September 2011. For further details of these activities, see: www.escardio.org
