Building on the success of World Congress of Cardiology 2010

The World Heart Federation’s recent WCC, held in Beijing, China, from 16–19 June was a huge success, and brought together over 10,000 participants from more than 120 countries. A feature of the congress was the 3rd International Conference on Women, Heart Disease and Stroke, as CVD remains the leading cause of death among women globally, and as a gap exists in women’s knowledge and awareness of their risk.  Another key topic of the congress was tobacco control, including smokefree policy, which was highlighted as a top priority on the global and heart health agendas. A total 230 scientific sessions, 500 faculty members and 85 exhibitors contributed to the wealth of information shared and the positive impact of the congress for its participants.
