EHC Global Forum in Collaboration with Siemens for a Humanitarian Purpose in Aswan Courtesy of Ahmed ElGuindy, MSc, MRCP, Division of Cardiology, Aswan Heart Centre, Aswan, Egypt, Magdi Yacoub, FRS, Harefield Heart Science Centre, National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London, UK, and Roberto Ferrari, PhD, European Heart for Children Global Forum, Italy Like many Egyptian cities, Aswan has many attractions for the enjoyment of tourists, but there is more to life in Aswan. For the majority of the local population, life is a struggle against poverty. This is particularly the case for those families who have children suffering from congenital heart disease. Until recently they did not have access to the necessary treatment that would give their children a healthy future, but in April 2013, a collaboration changed all of this.
