This report derives from a project conducted at Columbia University during 2003, which examined the economic and social consequences of cardiovascular disease in developing economies. The project followed on from the work of the commission on macroeconomics and health, chaired by professor Jeffrey Sachs.
The Report of the World Health Organization (WHO) Commission on Macroeconomics and Health (CMH) in 2001 called attention to the two-way causation between health and economic development. Investments in health not only reduce the burden of disease, but also stimulate economic growth, which in turn raises a society’s ability to invest in public health. On the other hand, when an economy is too impoverished to invest in health, it is likely to experience a devastating downward spiral of rising disease burden and deepening poverty. The CMH focused much of its attention on the urgent public health crises of sub-Saharan Africa, a region ravaged by HIV, malaria and tuberculosis. It did note, however, that cardiovascular deaths were set to increase from 3 million in 1998 to almost 5 million in 2020 in the WHO Demographically Developing Regions (without interventions), a year in which the number of deaths from infectious diseases and related conditions would equal the number of deaths due to chronic diseases. A central message of the CMH Report was that scaling up the investment in health, both from the resources available within a country, and with foreign aid when needed, was vital to enable the world’s poorest places to escape from the trap of extreme poverty.
