“The burden of cardiovascular disease in India is huge. No infrastructure can tackle it. Prevention is the most practical proposition,” says Dr. Amal Banerjee “The only way to target high prevalence of diabetes, hypertension and obesity is to take measures from childhood. Nutritional care during pregnancy is also important because a child born of a mal-nourished mother is prone to develop cardiovascular disease.” Avoiding risk factors or treating them effectively involves a nationwide awareness campaign run by trained paramedics who can go door-to-door to educate people.
