Almost 400 participants from various sectors attended the Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Conference which we organized in Davao City on November 28-29.

With the theme, “Local Collaborators for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Control,” the conference featured 19 speakers who shared their respective experiences and best practices in CVD programs.

Optimism was high. In his keynote message, Department of Health – Center for Development Regional Director Dr. Abdullah B. Dumama Jr. said that “CVD prevention is within our reach.” He also referred to the alliance between Davao City and Handicap International as a sure step towards CVD prevention.
