The President Message

As the president of the World Heart Failure Society it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Oasis city of Al Ain, United Arab Emirates.

It is my privilege to warmly welcome distinguished speakers, delegates and honorable guests to the 4th World Heart Failure Society Congress, to be held in DANAT Resort, Al Ain, 11-13 December 2014.

Heart Failure is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality requiring frequent hospitalization with a significant impact on lifestyle not only for the patients but also for their relatives and loved one. Moreover, Heart failure is an important contributor to both the burden and cost of national healthcare expenditures.

Heart failure should no longer be considered a specific problem of developed countries, but, rather, a global disease requiring a global response. In nearly all regions of the world heart failure is on the rise.

Research activities, epidemiological surveys, regional guidelines, preventive measures, heart failure clinics, management programs, public awareness and educational programs with the involvement of doctors, nurses, epidemio­logists, health care authorities is mandatory to combat heart failure problems.

A number of distinguished Scientists, Clinicians, Experts and authority in the field of Heart Failure have been invited from The Netherlands, United Kingdom, USA, Australia, Brazil, Argentine, Russia, India, South Korea, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Sudan, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa, Turkey and Sweden. Thus, worldwide and global experiences on heart failure will be brought to Abu-Dhabi.

The Congress will be of interest, in particular for cardiologists, internists, epidemiologists, primary health care physicians, pharmacologists and nurses from United Arab Emirates as well as those from the region.

The interdisciplinary program, which is structured in form of plenary lectures, oral and poster presentations that cover a wide variety of themes, will provide a broad, but in-depth presentation of current issues in heart failure.

Etiology of heart failure (hypertension, diabetes mellitus, ischemic heart disease), regional variations, pathophysiology of heart failure, ventricular remodeling from bench to bedside, Inflammation, myocardial Fibrosis, Sodium water homeostasis and heart failure as well as depression and cognitive dysfunction, non-invasive imaging of heart failure, recent advances and controversies will be the focus of the congress through interaction with renowned international speakers.

In addition to the scientific program, delegates will have a lot to see and enjoy in Al Ain and UAE. Al Ain offers a wide range of must-see attractions such as museums, camel market and race, shopping malls and of course the desert and its beautiful dunes.

You are welcome and we are looking forward to seeing  you in Al Ain.


Sincerely yours,

Prof Elsadig  Kazzam
