The members of the IASH Executive Committee met in the city of Orlando FL, September 12 -13, 2016 to develop a strategic plan that will allow the Society to successfully succeed in accomplishing the educative and medical goals of the organization across the American continent. Under the direction of Dr. Roccella, attending members of the Executive Committee chartered the roadmap that will guide the IASH in accomplishing its objectives.
The Americas will have the best blood pressure control and lowest prevalence of cardiovascular disease in the world.
Improve hypertension control and reduce incidence of cardiovascular disease by promoting communication, education, and research across the Americas.
IASH will facilitate scientific and educational exchange between researchers and clinicians in the Americas.
As non-communicable diseases are recognized as the major cause of death and disability in the world, IASH will promote a paradigm shift away from the prevailing concept among stakeholders that current therapeutic approaches to high blood pressure control are adequate.
IASH will work with all other organizations interested in hypertension and cardiometabolic disease in achieving our vision of best blood pressure control and CVD risk reduction in the Americas.
Implement a core set of strategies and practice approaches directed to eliminate gaps in quality care management techniques to achieve successful control of hypertension and target-organ damage.
