Stroke has become the number one cause of death in China

"Publicity activities of "Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Disease Prevention and Control Month

Remind you to pay attention to the early risk factors of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases


Tan Yongzhong began his speech by saying that the overall incidence and prevalence of stroke in China is still on the rise, and the burden of stroke disease is still increasing, with 12.42 million people aged 40 and above suffering from stroke.  Stroke has become the number one cause of death in China's population. The 2018 China Health Statistics Summary shows that in 2017, the mortality rate of cerebrovascular disease in China was 126.48/100,000 for urban residents and 157.00/100,000 for rural residents, according to which it is estimated that as many as 1.96 million patients die of stroke each year nationwide, and 70% of the survivors are left with varying degrees of permanent disability.

 

After years of publicity and education on hypertension prevention and control in Zhejiang Province, and the unremitting efforts of the government and professional institutions at all levels, the control effect has been significantly improved. The results of the 2013 survey in Zhejiang Province show that the awareness rate, medication rate and control rate of hypertension patients in urban and rural populations in the province are 69.3%, 58.8% and 31.9% respectively, achieving remarkable results and extensive social benefits in the prevention and control of hypertension. Despite the great progress in prevention and control of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, the situation is still serious, so it is urgent to pay attention to the early risk factors of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, early detection and early intervention.


 


Wang Haiyan said that today's large-scale "Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Disease Prevention and Control Month" campaign aims to increase the public's awareness of blood pressure and raise awareness of stroke. At the same time, cardiovascular disease risk assessment was carried out to advocate the public to pay attention to cardiovascular disease risk factors at an early stage. Through health education, the campaign aims to raise awareness of stroke and hypertension, strengthen the awareness of prevention and treatment, improve self-management ability, cultivate a healthy lifestyle, and realize that individuals are responsible for their own health, starting from me, everyone is concerned about health.
