This year saw the ESC Congress join forces with the World Heart Federation for a combined congress which kicked off on 31 August. The theme of this year’s congress: ‘Global Cardiovascular Health’ came as a breath of fresh air together with the promise from World Heart Federation president, Professor Karen Sliwa to herald an era of joint commitment by these two organisations to global health. The venue was spacious, comfortable and very easy to reach by Paris metro.
Prof. Karen Sliwa (South Africa), Prof. Albertino Damasceno (Eduardo Modlane University, Maputo, Mozambique), Dr Peter Zartner (Germany) and Prof. Ana Mocumbi (Ministry of Health, Maputo, Mozambique) were invited to give lectures at an educational workshop, held on 9th April at the Cardoso Hotel, Maputo.
The Heart Failure Society of South Africa (HeFSSA) worked diligently during this year to ensure that we successfully achieved the goals that we set for the society for 2013: To continue to provide value to the SA Heart Association, colleagues, industry and to our patients and to acknowledge our responsibility towards the communities in which we practice and our sponsors.
