Welcome to The Kenya Cardiac Society

Kenya Cardiac Society (KCS) is professional society founded in 1981 that brings together health professionals with interest in Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs). Our membership comprises all cadres of health professionals including cardiologists, physicians, medical officers, nurses among others. Our vision is to promote and maintaining the highest standards of CVD in Kenya. We achieve this through education, promotion of best practices and research. We also engage in various advocacy activities to improve access and affordability to quality CVD services in Kenya.

Kenya Cardiac Society Football team

Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs) remain the world’s biggest killers globally. The World Heart Day is the largest global awareness raising platform for Cardiovascular Disease (CVDs). This day is dedicated to leading the global fight against CVDs, including heart disease and stroke. Locally every year Kenya Cardiac Society (KCS) partners with the Ministry of Health (MoH) at both National and County level to coordinate and celebrate World Heart Day. To commemorate World Heart Day 2022, Kenya Cardiac Society in collaboration with the Kenya Medical Association, MP Shah Hospital and other stakeholders organized a football tournament dubbed “Health Heart Football Tournament” on 1st October 2022 at the Public Service Sports club. The event attracted close to 100 health professionals and students. We plan to make this football tournament an annual event.
