Up to 94% of people with type-2 diabetes in the US have at least one additional CVRM condition.7 We work to provide solutions for these complications that might become life-threatening, to change the lives of type-2 diabetes patients by reducing risk factors through early prevention. We aim to raise awareness of common comorbidities and inspire healthcare professionals and patients alike to get involved in our holistic approach towards disease management.
Up to one in five people who have been event-free for a year may experience another heart attack within three years of the first.10 Working together with healthcare professionals, we help raise awareness of the importance of secondary prevention among heart attack survivors.
Chronic kidney disease infographic皇冠登录页面
Chronic kidney disease occurs in the context of multiple comorbidities and has been termed as a “disease multiplier.”11 We work to find ways to help patients manage the many complications and provide solutions for better disease management.

We follow the science to develop innovative treatments and ultimately, modify or even halt the natural course of the disease and regenerate organs. We are agnostic to drug modality, we identify and validate novel targets based on genetics and human target validation and then apply the best modality to modulate the target. Together with key experts throughout the world we collaborate to accelerate our scientific progress, and to further define patient populations that may benefit from the novel cardio-renal-metabolic therapies we are developing.
Phase III/LCM Projects: refers to assets that are pivotal in Phase II/III, or that have been submitted for regulatory approval, and may include assets that are now launched in one or more major markets (removed when launched in all applicable major markets).
Healthy Heart Africa is committed to tackling hypertension and the increasing burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in Africa. Since launching in Kenya in 2014, then Ethiopia in 2016, Tanzania in 2018 and Ghana in 2019, we have conducted over 11 million blood pressure screenings; identified over 2 million elevated readings; trained over 5,800 healthcare workers; and activated over 700 healthcare facilities.12 In support of the United Nations targets to reduce the risk of premature death from NCDs,13 we aspire to reach 10 million people with elevated blood pressure across Africa by 2025.

Supported by the American Heart Association (AHA) and AstraZeneca, One Brave Idea (OBI) aims to understand the molecular events surrounding the earliest transition from wellness to disease in coronary heart disease (CHD). OBI is turning its focus upstream and seeking out earlier changes in the development of CHD, working outside the constraints of traditional biomedical science. Through an agile approach, multidisciplinary team and unique organisational structure, OBI is paving the way for innovative research.
The American Heart Association (AHA), in partnership with the Chinese Society of Cardiology (CSC), initiated Improving Cardiovascular Care in China (CCC) in 2014. A multi-year project, CCC is designed to promote implementation of atrial fibrillation (AFib) and acute coronary syndrome (ACS) guidelines, and thereby improve outcomes for inpatients with AFib and ACS. CCC is a turning point for AFib and ACS care in China, facilitating effective guideline compliance and quality execution through best practice initiatives and training.
