Primary Cardiovascular Care in Ukraine (English)

The EPCCS aims to improve the care and outcome of patients with cardiovascular disease. This will be achieved by providing exchange of knowledge, practical guidance and the promotion amongst primary care clinical practitioners of research, education and developments relating to cardiovascular and metabolic disease in general, and community cardiovascular medicine in particular.
