An online resource to support health care professionals, patients and researchers with important research, best practice information, and online courses on Ischemic Heart Disease. The content is free to access until the end of the year.

Ischemic heart disease (IHD), also known as coronary artery disease (CAD) or coronary heart disease (CHD), is the most common type of cardiovascular disease and the leading cause of death worldwide.  According to the Global Burden of Disease study conducted in 2017,  IHD affects around 126 million individuals (1,655 per 100,000), which is approximately 1.72% of the world’s population. Nine million deaths were caused by IHD globally. IHD is the number one cause of death, disability, and human suffering globally.

As a global healthcare knowledge provider, it is our vision to create a healthier world and to improve patient outcomes. We have gathered some of our most important IHD resources, including research articles, continuing medical education modules and clinical decision support summaries and have made them free to access, to help in the fight against this preventable and treatable disease.
