CVD Risk Assessment Programmes - EHN Position Paper

December 03rd 2014


The European Heart Network (EHN) paper on cardiovascular risk assessment reviews the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of programmes aimed at identifying people at high risk of developing and dying prematurely from CVD. The paper has been updated in November 2014 to take into account new findings from recent studies.


EHN recommends that the European Commission, as part of a comprehensive EU strategy on cardiovascular diseases, makes a proposal for an EU recommendation on national cardiovascular risk-assessment programmes to be implemented by the EU Member States.
