The World Heart Federation’s World Congress of Cardiology & Cardiovascular Health 2018 is returning to Dubai

to host an outstanding lineup of world leaders in cardiology, cardiovascular medicine and health. The 2012 World Congress of Cardiology held in Dubai saw health professionals participate in over 150 sessions and workshops. Since then Dubai has seen the growth and integration of global scientific and health leadership to meet the new health challenges in the region namely the continuing use of tobacco, the rise in obesity rates and the corresponding increase in the prevalence of diabetes all contributing to the emerging burden of circulatory diseases.


This is a critical moment in the history of this cardiovascular epidemic when the opportunities for a sustainable impact on CV health has never been greater. That is why WCC 2018 is centred around the World Health Organization (WHO) global goal of reducing premature mortality from cardiovascular disease by 25% by 2025 (25 by 25). The World Heart Federation is delighted and honoured to be returning to Dubai, working in partnership with the Emirates Cardiac Society and the Gulf Heart Association to showcase how the global CV health community is working together to achieve this goal by tackling the burden of cardiovascular disease, prioritizing prevention and ensuring access to innovative treatment.


The shift in focus from high income countries to low and middle income countries is an acknowledgment by the CV community that a global response to the world’s number one killer is needed, to ensure no one is left behind. We welcome to WCC 2018 all those that have critical roles to play in promoting CV health, including cardiologists, general physicians, general practitioners, nurses, allied health professionals, medical students and other health professionals in training.


WCC 2018 organized in partnership with Emirates Cardiac Society and the Gulf Heart Association is the global platform to discuss the prevention and control of cardiovascular disease. Our scientific sessions attracts professional attendees from more than 110 countries. With a focus not only on ‘cardiology’ but also on ‘cardiovascular health’, colleagues from the fields of prevention, pediatrics, nursing, internal medicine, interventional medicine, nephrology, endocrinology and public health are encouraged to join these networking and learning forums.


We have made exciting changes to the programme with new topics added to increase the educational offerings available to delegates. WCC 2018 will introduce exciting new ways for delegates to interact. We have outstanding speakers and opportunities to convene global emerging leaders, poised to shape the future of heart health. We will feature workshops, debates, meet the expert sessions as well as reintroduce our very well-received World Heart Federation Arena which offers 15 minute presentations, moderated abstracts and much more.
