Coronary heart diseases are the leading cause of death among young adults in Armenia. Among several AFHA’s (Armenia France Health Action) achievements is the organization of the Euro Caucasian Congress of Cardiology (ECCC) to help Armenia in the field of cardiology.

AFHA has introduced the technique of coronary angioplasty in Armenia, has trained Armenian cardiologists in the interventional cardiology, but also has provided a new coronarography table to the Nork Marash Hospital in Yerevan. To continue this key transfer of technology and knowledge, AFHA has planned to offer to this small Caucasian country an international congress of cardiology.

In November 2007, the AFHA organized in Yerevan, in close collaboration with the Ministry of Diaspora, and under the scientific authority of Dr. Paul Barragan, the First Franco-Armenian Cardiovascular Meetings. It was a huge success right from the start.

Later, this event has been renamed the Euro Caucasian Congress of Cardiology. Every two years ECCC brings together 300 participants around a set of highly qualified cardiologists from Europe, Caucasus, Commonwealth of Independent States, the Middle East...

Since 2009 ECCC is co-organized with the Ministry of Diaspora and the Ministry of Health of Armenia. It has been declared to the National Council of the Medical Association and has become the scientific event of the year for the whole region.

The Scientific Event of the year for the entire Caucasus
