The Canadian Heart Health Strategy and Action Plan has been released, and is described as “a road map for improving the heart health of Canadians from prevention to patient care.” The cost of the plan, which is yet to be funded, is estimated at $100 million a year over seven years, but it is also calculated that it can save the economy $7.6 billion in direct costs and $14.6 billion in indirect costs by 2020.
