Abstract:

Annotation

Cardiovascular disease now ranks as the world's top cause of death, causing one third of all deaths globally. Heart disease can no longer be seen as the problem of overworked and overweight middle-aged men in developed countries. In today's world, women and children too are at risk. Already 75% of all CVD deaths occur in the poorer regions of the world and this is likely to increase in the future.<br /><br />Following on from the success of WHO's Tobacco Atlas, the Atlas of Heart Disease and Stroke addresses this most urgent health issue in a ground-breaking, clear and accessible format, designed to inform UN agencies government officials politicians and other decision makers the media researchers and the general public as well as provide an essential tool for the health professional.<br /><br />The Atlas of Heart Disease and Stroke charts in full-color maps and graphics the wide range of issues relating to this global epidemic.<br /><br />Topics include:<br /><br />* Risk factors: high blood pressure, tobacco use, inactivity, obesity, lipids, diabetes<br /><br />* Women: childhood and youth<br /><br />* The global burden of CVD including the economic burden<br /><br />* Research<br /><br />* Prevention<br /><br />* Policies and legislation<br /><br />* Treatment<br /><br />* Predictions<br /><br />
