Tackling Cardiovascular Diseases in the Young

14 Dec 2020 - 14:00

On Friday, November 20th, 2020 the Core Group hosted the fifth installment of their NCD interest group webinar series in collaboration with the American Heart Association, Reach and Children's Heartlink. 

Leading authorities in heart health spoke about developments in the political landscape as well as national efforts to support children living with heart disease. The webinar also served to launch seminal publications on advocacy in rheumatic hearth disease that touch on the implications of COVID, the research agenda being pursued in these areas, and frontline experiences from implementing organizations and country partners, as well as present advocacy documents such as the Declaration of Rights of Individuals Affected by Childhood-Onset Heart Disease and the Invisible Child Call to Action in the COVID-19 Pandemic.
