Abstract

With 100 million people affected by heart related diseases, India is set to be the heart disease capital of the world by 2010. India will have 62 million patients with heart disease by 2015, compared to 16 million in the US. The rate of heart attacks among Indians younger than 45 years of age in the last three years was five times higher than in other populations. If urgent preventive steps are not taken, heart attack deaths in India are likely to double by 2015. It is predicted by the year 2015, almost 20 million people will die from CVD, mainly from heart diseases and stroke.
