Cardiovascular Diseases

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a general term for conditions affecting the heart or blood vessels. It's usually associated with a build-up of fatty deposits inside the arteries – known as atherosclerosis – and an increased risk of blood clots.

CVD is the number one cause of death worldwide, with an estimated 17.7 Million deaths in 2015, with around 7.4 Million (over 41%) of these due specifically to CHD and about 6.7 Million (just over 39%) specifically due to stroke (WHO, 2017). The total economic impact of CVD, including both direct costs such as treatments and indirect costs such as productivity loss, is considerable and varies between countries.

In the UK, total healthcare costs of CVD exceed $11 Billion annually, with annual economic costs of CVD exceeding $24 Billion annually (Townsend et al., 2012). In the US total costs associated with CVD were estimated to be as high as $656 Billion in 2015 and could rise to as high as $1.2 trillion by 2030.
