Ischemic Screening Launch Date

In February 2013, PANAHF launched its Ischemic Heart Disease Screening program. The Heart Health program screens for the risk factors that contribute to coronary artery disease which is predicted to be the biggest killer in Africa by 2030. Certain sub-groups, such as those of Indian origin, have a higher risk of developing the disease. Already in the patients screened silent high blood pressure was detected and treated using non-medical intervention.
