Data resource profile: Cardiovascular H3Africa Innovation Resource (CHAIR)

ABSTRACT

Low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) constitute the majority of the world’s population and bear more than 80% of the global burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD).1,2 The recent increases in CVD globally are also reflected in LMIC, where the prevalence of overall deaths from CVD was 28% in 20013 and premature CVD mortality was 37% in 2015.4 The paucity of data regarding the drivers of the CVD epidemic and contextualized solutions is, in part, because less than 10% of the global research resources and facilities for implementation are found in LMIC.5,6 Therefore LMIC are particularly disadvantaged in dealing with the CVD burden with targeted interventions. at the individual and community levels. due to the lack of data availability.
