Whilst attending the AsiaPCR conference in Singapore earlier this year, representatives from 3 candidate countries, namely Hong Kong, Malaysia and Myanmar, had the opportunity to join the official signing ceremony on 25 January 2018 to become one of the official Stent – Save a Life! member countries/cities.
The declaration was signed by the respective appointed Country/City Champions and Cardiovascular Society Representatives in the presence of the Stent – Save a Life! Chairman, Dr. Christoph Naber from Germany, and the Asia Regional Champions, Dr. Paul Ong from Singapore and Dr. Michael Lee from Hong Kong.
As new Stent – Save a Life! member countries/cities, all the representatives have agreed to formulate their own 3-year plan to promote and execute a concrete strategy to implement primary PCI for STEMI in their own region. All of them also declared full compliance with the aims and objectives of the Stent – Save a Life! Global Initiative.
We wish them every success in their implementation of the primary PCI plan and hope they can contribute to bring the awareness and care of STEMI patients to a new level in Asia!
