Our Achivments

The nation has been facing relentless burden of cardiovascular problems for a long time while the epidemiological pattern of some of the cardiac diseases are showing epidemic trends. The economic load of these diseases are enormous both at individual and national level. The nation had been struggling for the need of specialized service centre and manpower. With these backgrounds, the Government of Bangladesh established the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases in 1978.

The cardiovascular field has been observing worldwide rapid expansion in the recent years. The Institute is showing all efforts to keep pace with this development and there is notable improvement in the field of investigations and management.
