The publication of the new report on European Cardiovascular Disease Statistics 2017 will be the basis of a debate today in the European Parliament in Brussels.

The debate is organised by the Members of the European Parliament MEP Heart Group, with the support of the European Society of Cardiology and of the European Heart Network.

Cardiovascular disease is still the number one cause of death in Europe but the fall in death rates from heart disease and stroke over recent decades shows a sustainable trend.
