Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death globally, but it does not affect the world’s population equally. Over three-quarters of the estimated 17.9 million deaths from CVD in 2019  occurred in low- and middle-income countries. Although there are advances in the diagnosis and treatment of CVD, the health systems in these countries have not been able to keep up with the growing burden of this disease. In collaboration with partners such as NCD Alliance and Heart Healers International, Philips Foundation explored ways of expanding access to CVD care in a dedicated webinar, in line with its mission of providing access to quality healthcare for underserved communities. This webinar brought together like-minded experts to discuss key topics such as the prevention of CVD, how to scale up successful pilot projects, and the fundamental shifts required to improve access to cardiovascular care.
