WHO maps heart disease and stroke "epidemic":

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Some 17 million people globally die every year from heart disease and stroke - a number set to rise to over 20 million by 2020 and to 24 million by 2030. So says the World Health Organization in its Atlas of Heart Disease and Stroke, published this week in partnership with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The report provides updated data for each country, including risk factor statistics of related conditions, including high blood pressure, obesity, lipids and diabetes. It also maps the policies and legislation adopted in different countries to tackle, in the words of the WHO, "this global epidemic".
