Increasing cardiovascular disease rates in developing nations could threaten economic development, a new report has found.

Governments, business and aid groups need to concentrate on this issue to avoid the impact, according to the National Academies Institute of Medicine.

A lack of awareness and a lack of leadership are major hurdles to combating the growing epidemic of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in the developing world.

The private sector is also seen as playing a critical role in the development of prevention strategies, like helping people reduce salt, sugar, saturated fats and trans fats in their diets.

The report also recommends that pharmaceutical and medical technology firms, insurance companies, and public health and private aid groups need to work together to make therapies and diagnostic tools affordable and accessible.
