Founded in 2004, the European Foundation for Vascular and Preventive Medicine (EFVM) is a non-governmental and non-profit organisation. Here, doctors, biologists, basic researchers and clinical scientists of different other disciplines work together as volunteers.
We have made it our goal to improve the cardiac and vascular medical care in so-called non-metropolitan regions.
Furthermore, the foundation is committed to health projects for women, mother and child health care and to health projects outside of Europe – especially in so-called low-resource settings in the sub-Saharan zone.
The work of the EFVM is financed exclusively by donations and endowments.
Well-known personalities from culture, politics and medicine from around the world support the EVFM in these goals.
