    Package of care for CVD

    CVD is the leading cause of mortality worldwide, accounting for 30% of deaths, with the vast majority of these in low and middle income countries. CVD is largely preventable, and straightforward cost-effective measures could mitigate intolerable increases in disease burden in the future.

    The challenge is to develop a systematic, feasible and effective approach to chronic care for patients with CVD.  COMDIS HSD recently developed a package of care for cardiovascular disease (CVD), hypertension and type II diabetes in low and middle income countries.

    The package of care consists of a number of tools, specifically a Case Management Desk Guide for Clinicians and a Health Educator Desk Guide for Health Workers.
