Abstract or Introduction
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is seemingly becoming an immense challenge to the public health system. According to epidemiological reports, CVD has become the leading cause of disability and death worldwide, and it accounts for more than 2 million deaths in the United States. Over the past decade, the prevalence and incidence rates of CVD have been taking upward trends with stroke and heart disease being the most prevalent worldwide. In the US, it is estimated that 71.3 million adults are having one or more types of cardiovascular disease (Mensah & Brown, 2007). Therefore, this paper aims at providing a comprehensive epidemiological overview of CVD and design appropriate management and mitigation approaches that are suitable for local communities in addressing the disease.
