Our Global Reach

A global problem

Heart disease is the world’s number one killer. The World Health Organisation estimates that 17 million people around the world died from cardiovascular disease in 2008, and due to the growing epidemics of diabetes and obesity, this number is expected to surge to 23 million by 2030. This is a global health problem of epic proportions. Find Out More About Heart Disease.
