Themed “ASEAN’s Commitment to Cardiovascular Health”, AFCC 2018 will act a platform for delegates to share their latest discoveries, learn scientific breakthroughs and develop future collaborations to improve patients’ care in the region. AFCC’s scientific program will cover a wide range of topics related to cardiovascular disorders including Acute Coronary Syndrome, Cardiac Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology, Interventional Cardiology, Congenital Heart Disease, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, Valvular Heath Disease and Hypertension.

In addition to being an excellent forum for information sharing, it will also provide a good opportunity to connect with people working in the field of cardiology in the region. We guarantee that you will find this congress stimulating and enriching.

Centrally located in the Asia Pacific region, Bangkok is one of the world’s top 10 most visited cities, blessed not only with the best meeting facilities but also with cultural, historical and indigenous, attractions, varied shopping opportunities, etc. We are confident that you will have a memorable time and enjoy your stay in Bangkok besides the scientific experience.
