The Netherlands Heart Institute (NL-HI) and ZonMw. Organisations with two different backgrounds, areas of expertise and goals, but also two partners of the DCVA with a joint mission. Learn what these two parties stand for, how they are valuable to the DCVA, and how the DCVA is valuable to them.
The DCVA is an interdisciplinary partnership of twelve leading organisations representing patients, academia, healthcare professionals, industry and government. Although they have joined forces to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease, each of these partners also has its own background, ideas, ideals and goals.
Meet the partners
In this fourth edition of Meet the partners, we interview leaders of two of these partners, namely Prof. Dr. Dirk Jan Duncker (left), Ambassador and former board member of the Netherlands Heart Institute and Dr. Radjesh Manna (right), director of programs at ZonMw. NL-HI and ZonMw come from two completely different areas, but can reinforce each other within the DCVA. We ask them three questions, after which they ask each other an extra question.
