The Times of India and The Cardiological Society of India are organizing an India Heart Conclave to engage relevant stakeholders from the healthcare fraternity in a discussion on necessary actions for managing cardiological disorders.

 

India is undergoing a transition and is on the threshold of an epidemic of cardiovascular disease. It ranks extremely high amongst the nations struck by the rising wave of premature deaths caused by non-communicable diseases, mainly heart and blood ailments. The country of 1 billion plus was estimated to account for 60 percent of the world’s heart disease cases in 2010. And a recent study found that people in India and other South Asian countries suffer their first heart attack at age 53, on average – six years earlier than the rest of the world.

 

India Heart Conclave, a daylong conclave is being held on October 20, 2011, 2 pm onwards at The Oberoi Hotel, New Delhi.
