Map of PVRI Member countries

The PVRI is the only global medical research charity fighting PVD. Our mission is to improve the care of patients with PVD throughout the world by raising awareness of PVD, facilitating research and encouraging the development of medicines to treat PVD.

As a member of the PVRI, you will be part of a global network that includes over 6,000 people spread across 75 different countries, including an active membership of 1,250 PH professionals. Our Regional and Specialist Task Forces operate all over the world to raise awareness of the disease and to facilitate research - you can be part of this global effort.

This worldwide PVRI network makes it possible for our members to conduct basic, clinical and translational research at a level that no single individual or academic institution could accomplish. 

Giessen crowd 2014

Each year, we organise two large scientific meetings on different continents for our members, the pharmaceutical industry and the drug regulatory bodies:

  1. PVRI Annual World Congress
  2. PVRI Drug Discovery & Development Symposium.

These events are the forum we use to facilitate this global collaboration which allow us to produce some truly remarkable work. As a result, we have established an online library of clinical management guidelines, educational materials, advice and information about the current research initiatives and clinical trials.

To achieve our mission, we need more like-minded professionals to help us ensure the disease is diagnosed quickly and effectively, patients with the disease can be treated with the right medicine and our members can continue to produce work that contributes towards giving other people more time on this planet. Thank you.
