Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the world’s biggest killer… and the lowest priority
Cardiovascular disease (CVD), including heart disease and stroke, and other non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as cancer, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases, are the leading cause of death around the world, especially in low- and middle-income countries. CVD alone causes 1 in 3 deaths globally.
Yet NCDs receive less than 1% of Development Assistance for Health (DAH) funding.
