Belgian Cardiomyopathies Matter Roadmap

Cardiomyopathies, a group of diseases affecting the heart muscle, are often neglected despite the significant burden they pose on individuals and society in Belgium and other countries. Unlike most cardiovascular diseases, cardiomyopathies have a strong hereditary component affecting mostly young and active people. However, through enhanced awareness, detection, and healthcare provision, the impact and prevalence of those diseases could be reduced.

The Belgian Cardiomyopathies Matter Roadmap aims to address this by raising awareness and ensuring they receive positive policy attention from healthcare system decision-makers and KOLs. This Roadmap transposes the European priorities to the Belgian context to provide a framework for policy changes in Belgium endorsed by leading experts in the field through the Belgian Cardiomyopathies Matter Network.
