Global Heart Hub (GHH) is delighted to announce that the European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) has shown support for the Global Cholesterol Action Plan, bringing the number of signatories to 100!

Supporters of the Action Plan include World Heart Federation, FH Europe Foundation and patient organisations across the globe.

“This 100 signatories milestone on our Cholesterol Action Plan underlines the commitment to address ASCVD, responsible for more than 15 million deaths globally each year. The endorsement from EAS, a leading voice on ASCVD in Europe, will help drive forward our four-point plan to ensure unhealthy cholesterol levels are addressed as a public health priority,” says Neil Johnson, GHH Executive Director.

The 100 supporters, from across 41 counties, will receive specially developed training materials to help them activate change in the way ASCVD is prevented and treated in their country. The Action Plan outlines four clear goals: build alliances, raise public awareness, activate alliances, and improve high cholesterol detection and management.
