WHY WE NEED TO

ACT NOW

  • CVDs are the number 1 cause of death globally: more people die annually from CVDs than from any other cause.

  • Out of the 16 million deaths under the age of 70 due to noncommunicable diseases, 82% are in low and middle income countries and 37% are caused by CVDs.

  • An estimated 17.5 million people died from CVDs in 2012, representing 31% of all global deaths. Of these deaths, an estimated 7.4 million were due to coronary heart disease and 6.7 million were due to stroke.

  • Over three quarters of CVD deaths take place in low- and middle-income countries.
