Abstract

  • In the Americas, CVD represents about 38% of noncommunicable disease deaths.
  • A roadmap for secondary prevention in Latin America and the Caribbean is warranted.
  • Simple and practical guidelines should be developed and implemented.
  • PAHO proposes a realistic and efficient prevention coalition plan in Latin America to fight CVD.
  • The inclusion of the health system through health workers is highly recommended for a successful nationwide preventive program.
