Today, cardiovascular disease including coronary heart diease and stroke is the leading cause of death worldwide. Over the next 20 years the global burden of cardiovascular disease is expected to increase dramatically as the world develops. This expected increase is not inevitable, given that the associated risk factors are largely identified.
The Foundation has already raised over £ 2.5 million to support life changing research in a wide range of important areas.
The goals of the Foundation are:
"to bring about improvements in health in all parts of the world, particularly as regards diseases of the human circulatory system, and to advance public education by improving the knowledge of members of the medical and allied professions concerning such diseases and their prevention and treatment."
We welcome new contributors to the Foundation to help support the activities of the International Centre for Circulatory Health in its effors to advance standards of care in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, nationally and internationally.
