HEART MONTH - Cardiac (Heart) Failure


Heart Failure is classified under the diseases affecting the heart and blood vessels known in medical terms as Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs). CVDs are the leading cause of disabilities and deaths worldwide, accounting for 31% of total global deaths. Africa is at present a major contributor to the global burden of CVDs. In 2013, 5.5% of all the global CVD‑related deaths were in Africa. In South Africa, CVDs are the leading cause of death after HIV/AIDS. More South Africans die of CVDs than of all the cancers combined. CVDs are responsible for almost 1 in 6 deaths (17.3%) in the country.
