Modelling the Burden of Cardiovascular Disease

Updated: January 12, 2021

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of mortality worldwide, with almost 18 million reported deaths in 2016.

Two conditions—ischemic heart disease and cerebrovascular disease—are responsible for around 80 per cent of all CVD deaths.

This series of issue briefings models the financial and health burdens of cardiovascular disease in several countries.

Each issue briefing includes:

  • Key findings
  • The nation-specific burden of CVD
  • A breakdown of contributing factors
  • Far-reaching impacts
  • Supporting data and methodology
