14 Members of Parliaments across Europe call for a Joint Action on SHD at the occasion of World Heart Day

The letter was sent on 29 September 2021, marking World Heart Day. The letter has been signed by 14 elected parliamentarians across Europe and Members of the European Parliament.

The Coalition wanted to insist on the fact that early diagnosis can help reduce the impact of such pathologies and that age discrimination have direct effect on older patients who do not receive the same treatments as the younger.

We hope that the Commissioner will be open for a collaboration on tackling this and that a Joint Action on SHD will be considered as part of the EU4Health programme and be used as an occasion to improve the lives of patients suffering from SHD, regardless of their age.
