The striking differences in death disability and trends in cardiovascular diseases between high income countries and low and middle income countries described in this volume are largely related to the differences in public policies within as well as outside the health sector the availability of financial resources for health prevention and early detection practices capacity of the health workforce accessibility to diagnosis and treatment and primary care services.
