Cardiovascular diseases

Cardiovascular diseases are the single leading cause of death worldwide.

 
25% of the world's adult population affected

Every year, over 17 million people throughout the world die as a result of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) – over 30% of all human mortality.  Contributory factors include smoking, high cholesterol levels, diabetes, stress, sedentary lifestyle and an aging population.  While CVDs are more prevalent in the developed countries, there are clear signs of converging trends around the world in response to rising standards of living and changes in lifestyle.

Every year, 10 million myocardial infractions are recorded around the world.  Men are at greater risk than pre-menopausal women but 5 to 10 years after the menopause, women are at equal risk with men.

According to the Department of Health, diseases of the heart and vascular system are the two leading causes of deaths in the Philippines.
