Dear friends and colleagues,
For over 2 years, conferences were held online due to the devastating COVID-19 pandemic. This year, the Vietnam Heart Association is pleased to host the AFCC 2023 on-site.
On behalf of the organizing committee, I am delighted to welcome you to the 27th Congress of the ASEAN Federation of Cardiology, which will take place in Hanoi, Vietnam, from November 2nd-5th 2023.
This year, the theme of the scientific program is "Cardiology at the Crossroads: Challenges and Opportunities." The AFCC 2023 will focus on cardiovascular disease management in the context of multiple comorbidities, based on newly advanced interventions & technology, artificial intelligence, and telemedicine, with the limited resources of ASEAN and by collaborating with other developed foreign partners/countries.
With the participation of experts from many fields involving cardiology, we hope to find new perspectives to face the upcoming challenges in cardiovascular medicine.
It is my honor to invite all of you to the AFCC 2023. I am confident that you will be extremely pleased with the hospitality and beauty of Vietnam, and the meeting will be an integrated scaffold of learning, sharing knowledge and scientific breakthrough.
See you very soon in Hanoi!
President, Vietnam National Heart Association
