The Chinese cardiovascular health index (2017), the world's first national-level index on cardiovascular (CV) disease prevention and control, was released on Friday in Shanghai, which is also regarded as the first scientific, objective and comprehensive report reflecting the core health of Chinese.

The index system established national level big data in CV health index for the first time, outlining CV health prevention and control in China.

"The index will provide scientific basis for the policy makers and strive to reduce the illness," said Ge Junbo, chairman of Asia-Pacific Society of Interventional Cardiology.

Chronic diseases have become one of the biggest challenges in China's public health sector partially due to the aging population.

More than 40 percent of Chinese die of CV disease - the first cause of death in China.

"With the increasing number of CV diseases year-by-year, CV health index, as a comprehensive evaluation system, is very necessary," said Wang Honglin, director of chronic disease center at Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

"It will help reflect overall CV health conditions and its development trends. It also measures the development status, development pattern and governance structure of CV diseases from prevention to treatment,"Ge said.

The report is not only the most authoritative large-scale integrated CV health index, but also the world’s first national level index evaluation on CV disease prevention and control.

Eight institutions, such as the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and more than 40 experts participated in creating the health index.
