Multiple risk factors are causally related to cardiovascular disease morbidity and mortality. A twenty-five percent reduction in premature cardiovascular disease mortality globally is achievable but requires better implementation of evidence-based policies (tobacco control, among others) and integrated health systems strategies that improve myocardial infarction and stroke prevention and management.
