Cardiovascular diseases in the African region: current situation and perspectives: Report of the Regional Director
Regional Committee for Africa, 55 ( 2011-06-23 )

1. The burden of cardiovascular disease is increasing rapidly in Africa, and it is now a public health problem throughout the African Region. Most important are hypertension, stroke, cardiomyopathies and coronary heart disease. Rheumatic heart disease is still a major concern. 2. One of the reasons for increased cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) worldwide is the increase in aged populations. Another reason is exposure to various modifiable risk factors that are responsible for at least 75% of all the CVDs. 3. As with other noncommunicable diseases, CVDs are not often given the attention they deserve. As a result, most countries do not have national programmes or strategies to address CVDs. Likewise, surveillance systems for risk factors are almost non-existent in the Region. 4. Priority interventions aimed at reducing the burden of CVDs in the African Region include setting up national noncommunicable diseases programmes which include CVD; setting up surveillance systems based on risk factors; capacity building of health personnel; ensuring availability of costeffective medications; implementing the Framework Convention for Tobacco Control and the Global Strategy on Diet, Physical Activity and Health; and incorporating both primary and secondary prevention of rheumatic heart disease.

Cardiovascular mortality, all-cause mortality, and diabetes incidence after lifestyle intervention for people with impaired glucose tolerance in the Da Qing Diabetes Prevention Study: a 23-year follow-up study

Lifestyle interventions among people with impaired glucose tolerance reduce the incidence of diabetes, but their effect on all-cause and cardiovascular disease mortality is unclear. We assessed the long-term effect of lifestyle intervention on long-term outcomes among adults with impaired glucose tolerance who participated in the Da Qing Diabetes Prevention Study.The study was a cluster randomised trial in which 33 clinics in Da Qing, China-serving 577 adults with impaired glucose tolerance-were randomised (1:1:1:1) to a control group or lifestyle intervention groups (diet or exercise or both). Patients were enrolled in 1986 and the intervention phase lasted for 6 years. In 2009, we followed up participants to assess the primary outcomes of cardiovascular mortality, all-cause mortality, and incidence of diabetes in the intention-to-treat population.Of the 577 patients, 439 were assigned to the intervention group and 138 were assigned to the control group (one refused baseline examination). 542 (94%) of 576 participants had complete data for mortality and 568 (99%) contributed data to the analysis. 174 participants died during the 23 years of follow-up (121 in the intervention group vs 53 in the control group). Cumulative incidence of cardiovascular disease mortality was 11.9% (95% CI 8.8-15.0) in the intervention group versus 19.6% (12.9-26.3) in the control group (hazard ratio [HR] 0.59, 95% CI 0.36-0.96; p=0.033). All-cause mortality was 28.1% (95% CI 23.9-32.4) versus 38.4% (30.3-46.5; HR 0.71, 95% CI 0.51-0.99; p=0.049). Incidence of diabetes was 72.6% (68.4-76.8) versus 89.9% (84.9-94.9; HR 0.55, 95% CI 0.40-0.76; p=0.001).A 6-year lifestyle intervention programme for Chinese people with impaired glucose tolerance can reduce incidence of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality and diabetes. These findings emphasise the long-term clinical benefits of lifestyle intervention for patients with impaired glucose tolerance and provide further justification for adoption of lifestyle interventions as public health measures to control the consequences of diabetes.Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, WHO, the China-Japan Friendship Hospital, Da Qing First Hospital.

Cardiovascular risk factors in Saudi Arabian and non-Saudi Arabian diabetic patients in Saudi Arabia
Akbar, D.H.; Ahmed, M.M.; Al Gamdi, A.A. ( 2003 )

To determine frequency of cardiovascular risk factors in Saudi and non-Saudi diabetics, we studied patients attending King Abdulaziz University Hospital for follow-up in the period January 1997 to December 2001. Cardiovascular risk factors, including hypertension, hyperlipidaemia, obesity and smoking, were studied as well as degree of blood glucose control. Of 1122 patients in the study, 48% were Saudis and 52% non-Saudis. No statistically significant difference was found for prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors between the two groups. Correlation of each of the risk factors to patient's age showed significant correlation to hypertension and smoking
