Cardiac Care

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, and represents a rapidly increasing disease burden in South Asia. With healthcare utilization for cardiac care escalating, the lack of infrastructure for effective chronic disease management remains a concern.

Our comprehensive curriculum teaches patients and their caregivers the importance of preventative healthcare and empowers them with the knowledge they need to manage cardiovascular disease in the long and short-term. 

The program is presently being implemented by our local partners at the Sri Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences and Research (Bangalore and Mysore), 2 facilities of Manipal Hospital, and  21 facilities of Narayana Health.
