Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, and represents a rapidly increasing disease burden in South Asia1. With healthcare utilisation 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.
