The Minister of Health, Alexandru Rafila, announced in Cluj-Napoca the initiation of the “National Strategy for Combating Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Diseases” (SNBCC). The project initiated under the auspices of the Ministry of Health, the Romanian Academy, the Presidential Administration and the Romanian Parliament will be developed by experts from the professional societies of cardiology, neurology, neurosurgery, physical medicine and medical rehabilitation, in collaboration with international societies (World Stroke Organization , World Federation for Neurorehabilitation, European Academy of Neurology, European Stroke Organization, European Federation of Neurorehabilitation Societies). The integration of the contributions of the expert teams will be carried out by Prof. Univ. Dr. Dragoş Vinereanu and Prof. Univ. Dr. Dafin F. Mureșanu, corresponding members of the Romanian Academy.

“Cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, unfortunately, threaten the lives of our fellow citizens every day. We need a strategy and its rapid application in order to be as efficient as possible in the activity of prevention and treatment of these diseases. The strategy will be a key tool to increase the impact of our fight against these diseases, namely to increase patients’ access to highly qualified health services. I am aware that it is a long and difficult road, but it is our duty to travel it as people dedicated to health”, said Alexandru Rafila, Minister of Health.

The Ministry of Health shows that in Romania, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases are the main causes of death and disability, and due to the aging of the population and the increase in behavioral risk factors, a significant increase in the incidence of these diseases is predicted in the next decade.

“The purpose of the development and adoption of the SNBCC is to improve the health status of the Romanian population, by implementing a comprehensive reform plan in the field of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, which will be part of the . The guiding principles of SNCBCC are the evaluation of the spread and impact of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases among the Romanian population and the development of prevention programs, the development of specialized human resources in the field of interventional neurology, the expansion of the national network of immediate intervention centers in case of stroke and the increase of access to neurological recovery services at national level. The strategy will bring together and integrate the recommendations in a framework document for the reform in this field at the national level”, the press release states.
