The World Health Organisation’s (WHO) figures will indicate that the so-called ‘silent killers’ (heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, and obesity) still rule the roost in the hierarchy of killer diseases. These are preventable through early detection and proper management — pay a visit to any one of our clinics. According to the new WHO report global atlas on cardiovascular disease (CVD) prevention and control states that CVDs are the leading causes of death and disability in the world.
Although a large proportion of CVDs are preventable, they continue to rise, mainly because preventive measures are inadequate. If we were to take the cue from the WHO strategic plans, then CVHC’s approach and emphasis on prevention measures are spot on. Our goal is to effectively control CVD risk factors and to reduce the burden of the fast growing cardiovascular disease epidemic, particularly in developing countries.
Through diagnostics work and the implementation of prevention methods, we are able to help people and save lives.
