Cardiovascular Diseases

Curated Collections

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the number one cause of death and disability globally, with an estimated 17.7 million deaths from CVD in 2015. More than three-quarters of CVD deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries. The demographic shift towards older populations across the globe and the relatively slower decline in morbidity compared with mortality from CVD have resulted in increasing numbers of people with both CVD and other chronic and disabling conditions.
