Quotes

Study co-author, Professor Martin McKee from the , said: "For the first time ever we have been able to measure the enormous level of unmet need for treatment of heart disease in low and middle income countries. Far too many people are dying unnecessarily for lack of simple treatment, reinforcing the now overwhelming argument for strengthening health systems"
"We have found that health care is as important, if not more important, than avoiding the risk factors, like smoking, bad diet and low exercise, in reducing cardiovascular disease" says Lear, who is also the Pfizer/Heart and Stroke Foundation Chair in Cardiovascular Prevention Re at St. Paul's Hospital
"We hope to keep working away at those wait lists" MacCharles said
"There is a real paradox,” Dr. Salim Yusuf, lead study author and director of PHRI, said in a press release . “We found that richer countries with higher risk factors have less heart disease and once people have a heart attack or stroke, the risk of dying is substantially less compared to poor countries.”"
