Reducing the burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD) has been a public health priority for more than 50 years and will continue to be in the foreseeable future.
1 Preventive interventions have been attempted in many different settings, including communities, schools, faith groups, worksites, and health care facilities. 2 Most efforts have focused on single risk behaviors (diet, tobacco use Cited by: Prevention of cardiovascular disease: guidelines for assessment and management of total cardiovascular risk.

The term cardiovascular disease refers to any disorder of the heart and blood vessels, including hypertension, coronary artery disease (CAD), cardiac dysrhythmias, cerebrovascular disease, valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathies, peripheral vascular disease, and congenital cardiac abnormalities.
