In 2019, nearly 400 million years of healthy life (quantified as disability-adjusted life years or DALYs) were lost due to cardiovascular disease (CVD). This marks a 24% increase in the global CVD burden compared to 2000 (316.9 million DALYs). This visualization tool makes it easy to evaluate trends over time of CVD overall or of a specific condition such as stroke or ischemic heart disease. You can explore the data by sex, age group, and location. Drag one or both ends of the grey bar beneath the chart to zoom in on smaller time periods.
