Abstract

Highlights

  • Cardiovascular disease negatively affects economic and human development in low- and middle-income countries.
  • Trends in development including urbanization, globalization, and privatization have increased cardiovascular risk, particularly in low-income communities.
  • There are challenges in implementing policies for cardiovascular disease prevention and treatment, thus requiring additional investment in research and evaluation.
