Subject: World Heart Federation Annual Report 2008
We are delighted to inform you that our Annual Report for 2008 is now available online. Thanks to collaborative efforts and continued support from you our member, the year 2008 included many notable events: the World Congress of Cardiology in Buenos Aires, which exceeded all expectations with over 17,000 delegates in attendance; the continued growth of World Heart Day and the Go Red for Women campaigns; and the development of our work on tobacco control and healthy lifestyles for children.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the role you played in contributing to the success of the World Heart Federation and your commitment to the prevention and control of cardiovascular disease worldwide. We wish Professor Pekka Puska, who has now taken over the Presidency, every success during his term and look forward to working with you in 2009.
With kind regards,
