International Longevity Center (ILC) Report on “The invisible epidemic: Rethinking the detection and treatment of SHD in Europe”

This report represents a major milestone in the consolidation of evidence and research on structural heart disease (SHD) and will strengthen the case for SHD Prioritization. In particular, the report provides a solid case for the following actions to be taken: 
  1. Increasing awareness, and improving detection and treatment
  2. Inspiring and engaging policymakers, healthcare professionals and individuals (political commitment to invest in SHD care)
  3. More effective technology and data gathering  (adoption of innovation)
  4. Involving patients in care decision
  5. Moving from recommendations to action (immediate use of RRF and EU4Health funds)
