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.
We develop high quality, culturally contextualized, medically accurate and engaging multimedia materials.
