The Pan-African Society of Cardiology (PASCAR)
The Pan-African Society of Cardiology (PASCAR) had its beginnings in 1981 in Badagry, Nigeria. PASCAR is an organisation of physicians from across Africa involved in prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease and is concerned by the lack of progress in the diagnosis and effective treatment of cardiovascular disease across Africa.
Africa does offer some unique challenges but, with sound and achievable objectives and a long-term vision, a positive impact on the disease can be made. The PASCAR Governing Council focuses on identifying key issues, brainstorming novel solutions and designing appropriate programs to combat cardiovascular disease on the continent.
