Director’s Note: Amid COVID-19 World Heart Day reminds us why cardiovascular diseases deserve our attention
For five years now the World Bank has been working to strengthen Ukraine’s capacity to address non-communicable diseases (NCDs), with a focus on cardiovascular diseases (CVDs). During this time, the World Bank also launched a new project in Kenya to expand access to care, including hypertension management.
With a growing number of COVID-19 patients, we must ensure health care workers can continue to prioritize CVD care.
As we reflect on World Heart Day this year, it is important to explore how different countries are navigating complications from COVID-19. How can we help people that are afraid to leave their homes to seek care, or those worried about taking public transportation to access their lifesaving medications?
Read more about how our partner is ensuring CVD care remains a priority on the World Bank’s website here.
