The Alliance was pleased to attend the 3rd Open Ancient Capital Congress of Cardiology in Hue, central Vietnam on 27 April 2024 at the kind invitation of Prof Huynh Van Minh, President, Vietnam National Heart Association.

We signed two MOUs and welcomed our first two partners in Vietnam: the Hue University of Medicine and Pharmacy (Hue UMP) and the Thua Thien Hue Cardiovascular Association.

Presenting the Alliance report A Call for Cohesive Action: Redefining Cardiovascular Care in the Asia-Pacific at the plenary session, Dr N Krishna Reddy highlighted that it was crucial for all healthcare professionals – cardiologists, public health professionals, family medicine – to work together in reducing premature deaths from CVD.  Reducing hospitalizations and slowing the growth of new CVD patients was also essential to ensure a sustainable health system moving forward.

A/P Farnaza Ariffin speaks on primary prevention and UiTM’s care model.

A/P Farnaza Ariffin, Associate Professor, Universiti Teknologi MARA Faculty of Medicine presented UiTM’s care model of primary prevention, while Dr Kasem Ratanasumawong, President, Heart Association of Thailand spoke about the current status of secondary prevention and heart failure in Thailand, alongside the Association’s policy advocacy efforts.

Dr Kasem Ratanasumawong dialled in for his presentation on secondary prevention and heart failure in Thailand.

The Alliance also had the opportunity to meet Prof Nguyen Vu Quoc Huy, Rector, Hue UMP, A/P Nguyen Minh Tam, Vice-Rector, Hue UMP and Director of the Hue UMP Family Medicine Center and A/P Hoang Anh Tien, deputy head of the Hue UMP Cardiovascular Center. We were grateful for the new connections forged and we look forward to deeper partnerships in future!
