Answer:
Best I can tell you is that it is certainly deadly; in terms of killer diseases this is its ranking CONTROL OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES dominant disease in developing countries. Although evidence from developed countries demonstrates that the control of CVD can be approached with measurable benefit through interventions at the individual, community, and national levels, this knowledge and experience have yet to be systematically applied in developing country populations. Thus, one reason the CVD burden persists and will increase in developing countries is because the potential implementation of intervention programs is hampered by the lack of appropriate awareness of cost-effective CVD control options and by concerns that such investments may detract from investments in communicable disease control and childhood, maternal, and reproductive health. According to Murray and Lopez (1996) TB was the sixth leading cause of death in 1990 in under-developed regions, with 1.922 thousand deaths. In comparison, the sixth leading cause of death in developed countries and regions is colon and rectum cancers. Ischemic heart disease is first in developed regions (2.695 thous deaths) and second in underdeveloped regions (3.565 thous); while lower respiratory infections lead in under-developed regions (3.915 thous).
