Tobacco free policy
Tobacco smoking is a major cause of preventable early death throughout the world. Cigarette smokers have almost double the risk of dying from coronary heart disease compared with non-smokers. Exposure of non-smokers to environmental tobacco smoke is increasingly suspected as being a cause of coronary heart disease. The World Heart Federation is active globally in reducing the prevalence of smoking. Workplaces, community, health care, educational institutions, food industry, health professionals and Governments are important settings for implementing this policy.
All premises occupied by the World Heart Federation, including those such as the MCEC that are used temporarily by the Federation, must be smoke-free. The WCC Congress Committees thank all participants and exhibitors for not smoking in the congress venue and its immediate surroundings at all times.

The organizers will accept no liability for personal injuries sustained by or for loss or damage to property belonging to Congress participants, either during or as a result of the Congress or during all tours and activities. It is therefore recommended that participants arrange their own personal health, accident and travel insurance. Companies should also arrange their own property loss, damage insurance or any other necessary insurance.
