There are several reasons for the high incidence of cardiovascular disease in low- and middle-income countries. First, people in these countries generally live longer. In addition, the prevalence of the disease is much higher among women than men. As a result, the health of women is more important than men’s, since the two groups lose two to three times the number of years due to CVD. Second, the prevalence of CVD is far higher in low- and middle-income countries.
Overall, the prevalence of CVD is highest among those over 80 years of age. The rate of death is lower in the Caribbean and Eastern Europe, but higher in Latin America and Southern sub-Saharan Africa. In sub-Saharan Africa, the rate is three times lower than the rate of mortality in similar SDI countries. Finally, the prevalence of CVD is higher among women in low- and middle-income countries than in high-income countries.
Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death in low- and middle-income countries. However, they are also common in upper-middle-income countries. Despite these disparities, researchers are looking at ways to reduce the risk of these diseases and improve the quality of life for these populations. For example, a study conducted in Brazil found that a higher intake of fruits and vegetables was linked to a reduced risk of heart disease.
In contrast, the prevalence of HIV was highest in Western sub-Saharan Africa and Central sub-Saharan Africa. Moreover, the rates were significantly lower in tropical Latin America and the Caribbean. This might be because individuals in these countries were less likely to stop smoking and consume a healthy diet. But the authors did not rule out other causes. This study identifies several reasons why these differences exist in the prevalence of cardiovascular disease.
The highest mortality rates were reported in those over 80 years of age. These deaths were associated with a higher risk of stroke and heart failure. Additionally, the rates were highly stratified by household wealth. The highest rates were found in Southern sub-Saharan Africa, and the lowest rates were found in Western sub-Saharan Africa and Andean Latin America. This suggests that CVD mortality is an important factor in health outcomes in these countries.
There are a number of reasons why cardiovascular disease in low- and middle-income countries is so high. While cancer and other diseases are more common in low- and middle-income countries, the prevalence of CVD is much higher in these countries. In addition to the poorer health conditions, CVD is the leading cause of death for adults. Regardless of where the patient lives, the condition can have devastating consequences in the community.
Although the mortality rate from cardiovascular disease is lower in low- and middle-income countries, it is still very high in Eastern and Sub-Saharan Africa. The prevalence of CVD is higher than in high-income countries, but is still far higher than in most developed nations. The rate of CVD is lower than in high-income nations, but it is still a major cause of death.
In 2015, more than 353,000 people died of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in low- and middle-income countries. In particular, a higher prevalence of endocarditis was found in the sub-Saharan African region than in the Middle East and North America. The rate of mortality for both diseases was twice as high as it was for other countries. For all these reasons, the mortality rate of CVD in low- and mid-income countries is much higher than in high-income countries.
In SSA, the rate of cardiovascular disease is more than twice that of high-income countries. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it is estimated that nearly three million people die each year from CHD, which is the leading cause of death in the region. This is a huge concern for many low- and middle-income countries, and the mortality rates are often higher. The prevalence of CVD is increasing as the per-capita income of the population grows.
