Cardiovascular disease (CVD)

The work of NCVIN includes coronary heart disease, stroke, hypertension (high blood pressure), hypercholesterolemia (excess cholesterol), diabetes, kidney disease, peripheral vascular disease (affecting blood vessels) and vascular dementia (caused by reduced blood flow to the brain).
