Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On Behalf of the Indonesian Heart Association (IHA), We are pleased to inform you that the 26th Annual Scientific Meeting of Indonesian Heart Association (26th ASMIHA) will take place in Jakarta, from 20 - 23 April, 2017. The Meeting will be conducted in collaboration with Asian Pacific Society of Cardiology (APSC), American College of Cardiology (ACC), European Society of Cardiology (ESC), ASEAN Federation of Cardiology (AFC), Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSANZ), and the Japanese Circulation Society (JCS).

The theme of this year is “Multidisciplinary Approach to Cardiovascular Disease in All Levels of Care”. This theme reflects the challenges faced by health professionals related to the increase in the complexity of heart diseases with various new diagnostic and therapeutic modalities introduced. At the same time Universal Health Coverage with limited budget has been implemented in some countries, like Indonesia. Certainly, multidisciplinary approaches are required to deal with the challenges while empowering health professionals including physicians, nurse, and allied health professionals in all levels of care.

The scientific program will include workshops, lectures, debates, case presentations, late breaking studies, young investigator award, free paper, poster presentation as well as industry symposia. During the four days of scientific sessions, attendees will experience more interactive sessions, featuring the latest updates on acute cardiac practice, heart failure, prevention, hypertension, cardio-metabolic syndrome, surgery, echocardiography, electrophysiology and pacing, vascular disease, cardiovascular imaging, intervention, pediatric cardiology and interact with colleagues from around the world.

ASMIHA is designed to meet the specific educational needs of medical professional involved in the management and treatment of cardiovascular diseases as they are encountered by general physicians, cardiologist, cardiovascular surgeons, pediatricians, internist, nurses and allied-health professionals. This scientific meeting would also be beneficial for those in education and training, such as fellows, residents, medical students and nursing or allied-health professional students.

We believe that the meeting will stimulate creative exchange of ideas and provide you with the opportunity to renew old friendship

We look forward to your active participation in the 26th ASMIHA and see you soon in Jakarta on April 2017.
