3rd Global Summit on Circulatory Health

Tuesday, 4 December 2018 to Wednesday, 5 December 2018

Theme:  “Access to Essential Medicines and Technologies”

Location: Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC), Dubai

The Global Summit is the thought leadership event designed to elevate cardiovascular disease, the world’s number one killer, as the top priority for key opinion leaders, Ministers of Health, public health officials and industry leaders.

Convened under the leadership of Professors Salim Yusuf, Martin McKee, and David Wood, the 3rd Global Summit will explore the theme of “Access to Essential Medicines and Technologies” by bringing together influencers and leaders from circulatory health and policymaking to work towards a concrete Call to Action to drive action on cardiovascular diseases.

This year’s Global Summit will also build on the successes of previous editions. The first Global Summit resulted in the first declaration on circulatory health — the Mexico Declaration — signed by 29 leading global organizations, including the World Heart Organization. Following the second Summit, the Global Coalition for Circulatory Health was launched in October 2017 at the WHO Conference on Non-communicable Diseases in Montevideo, Uruguay.

The Summit is an event by invitation only, intended for leaders in the field of cardiovascular and public health who will be expected to participate actively in the programme.
