CVD

Background
Despite the great importance of cardiovascular disease (CVD) as one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality, research and training in this disease has been relatively neglected in Uganda. There is lack of good quality data on the epidemiology of CVD and on clinical outcomes and few on-site experts in CVD. This situation translates into low levels of awareness in the communities, poorer outcomes and sub-optimal primary care responses to CVDs.
