This virtual conference will take place over two half days, with the aim of uniting and empowering cardiovascular patients, advocates and organisations on matters of importance to the community. The sessions will delve into:
- The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the cardiovascular patient community and how the lessons learned can catalyse change
- How policymaking works, and how patients can use their understanding to advocate effectively
- What policies and guidelines in specific cardiovascular disease areas mean for patients, and what are the associated advocacy issues
- The benefits and drawbacks of digital innovation from a cardiovascular disease patient perspective.

EACH brings together the leading health organisations, including SAFE, with an interest to promote policy action and investment to improve the cardiovascular health of European citizens.
EACH submitted a proposal to the Commission for a Joint Action on secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease for the EU4Health 2022 work programme. Secondary prevention helps to detect cardiovascular disease at an early stage, for example, through targeted screening in risk groups. By diagnosing at an early stage and ensuring appropriate referral and treatment, further development of the disease can be halted, helping to reduce morbidity and mortality. The EU4Health Joint Action will support Member States and the EU to raise awareness of the disease, improve data collection, share best practices and identify measures to promote secondary prevention.
