The burden of cardiovascular disease is rising in lower- and middle-income countries which are simultaneously hampered by poor awareness, inadequate access and suboptimal care. Several technological solutions are available which, if matched with trained non-physician healthcare providers, could result in substantial improvements at low cost. Prof. Doroiraj Prabhakaran, an expert in the field of cardiovascular care, will be sharing his experiences from India on innovations to prevent and manage CVDs in a variety of settings in India.

Professor Prabhakaran is a cardiologist and epidemiologist by training. He is an internationally renowned researcher and is currently the Vice President of Research & Policy at the Public Health Foundation of India, Executive Director of the Centre for Chronic Disease Control, New Delhi, India and Professor (Epidemiology) at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK.
