Dear Friends and Colleagues:
Welcome to the International Heart
Health Society (IHHS). This newly constituted society has its
roots in the wake of the 1st International Heart Health meeting
held in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada in May 1992. This meeting
produced the Victoria Declaration on Heart Health. Authored by
members of an international advisory board, this landmark document
made for the first time, a clear and unequivocal statement that
we have the evidence and capacity to virtually eliminate the world-wide
epidemic of cardiovascular disease by applying what we know and
working together in a spirit of collaboration and partnership.
Subsequently, a number of international conferences have been
held around the world with additional declarations released dealing
with important aspects of cardiovascular disease prevention and
control from a global perspective. These documents are accessible
through this website and I would encourage you to read and disseminate
them as widely as possible.

The IHHS was formally founded
in 2002 and is an associated member of the World Heart Federation.
Its main objective is to advocate to individuals and organizations
called upon by the Declarations, including governments, for the
implementation of policies and programs to prevent cardiovascular
disease and to promote health based on the recommendations of
our declarations. It is my hope that you will join us in this
great task. I would invite you to become a member of the Society
by submitting the application form that you will find on this
