Abstract

ObjectivesTo report the burden of cardiovascular diseases CVD in the Eastern Mediterranean Region EMR during 1990–2015.

MethodsWe used the 2015 Global Burden of Disease study for estimates of mortality and disability-adjusted life years DALYs of different CVD in 22 countries of EMR.

ResultsA total of 1.4 million CVD deaths 95% UI: 1.3–1.5 occurred in 2015 in the EMR, with the highest number of deaths in Pakistan 465,116 and the lowest number of deaths in Qatar 723. The age-standardized DALY rate per 100,000 decreased from 10,080 in 1990 to 8606 in 2015 14.6% decrease. Afghanistan had the highest age-standardized DALY rate of CVD in both 1990 and 2015. Kuwait and Qatar had the lowest age-standardized DALY rates of CVD in 1990 and 2015, respectively. High blood pressure, high total cholesterol, and high body mass index were the leading risk factors for CVD.

ConclusionsThe age-standardized DALY rates in the EMR are considerably higher than the global average. These findings call for a comprehensive approach to prevent and control the burden of CVD in the region.
