Chairman’s Message

By 2020, Cardiovascular disease (CVDs) will be the single leading cause of death and disability in India. Over the last 4 decades the prevalence of Coronary artery disease (CAD) in India has increased by four times. Its not just the urban population, even in rural areas it has doubled. Indians suffer heart attacks at least a decade earlier compared to their western counterparts, especially in their most productive years. It is extremely shocking to see someone in their 20’s or 30’s suddenly collapse due to massive heart attack. Therefore there is an urgent need to prevent CVD. Is it possible?

We know what works, we know what it costs and we know that all countries are at risk. We have an action plan to avert millions of premature deaths and help promote a better quality of life for millions more” – World Health Organization.

Major modifiable risk factors for CVD include

  • Smoking
  • Mental Stress
  • Sedentary life style
  • Overweight/ Truncal obesity
  • Diet (Unhealthy)
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol

Modification of these risk factors by vigorous education of people at both community and individual levels will drastically reduce the incidence of CVD. Regular check up of the heart will help in early detection of CAD, thereby preventing many deaths due to heart attacks. It is mandatory for everyone beyond the age of 35 to get a regular heart check up done. If somebody has family history of premature CAD, they need to get evaluated even a decade earlier (20’s)
