Global burden of CV diseases

1. Prevalence and Mortality:

CVDs are the leading cause of death globally, accounting for approximately 18.6 million deaths each year.

2. Risk Factors:

Common risk factors for CVDs include high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, smoking, obesity, diabetes, and a sedentary lifestyle.

3. Economic Impact:

The economic impact of CVDs extends beyond individuals and healthcare systems. CVDs can lead to decreased productivity and workforce participation due to disability, premature death, and reduced quality of life. This can result in lost economic output and reduced GDP growth. Furthermore, the costs associated with CVDs can divert resources away from other essential areas, such as education and infrastructure development.
