As a “national team” in disease prevention,Fuwai Hospital has been implementing a strategy of “transfer the responsibilityfor the prevention and control of cardiovascular diseases from hospital tocommunity” to decrease the incidence of cardiovascular diseases.

Pioneering the Prevention of Cardiovascular Diseases in China

Since itsestablishment, Fuwai Hospital has been advocating and leading the prevention ofcardiovascular diseases in China while developing and improving techniques forthe diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Fuwai Hospital startedepidemiologic study on the prevention and control of cardiovascular disease in1959. In 1978, under theleadership of Yingkai Wu the first Institute for Epidemiology and PopulationControl of Cardiovascular Diseases was established, which is focusing on the epidemiologic study, prevention,and control of cardiovascular diseases. In 2000, thePopulation Genetics and Prevention & Control Research Center wasestablished, opening up new areas of genetic research based on prevention andcontrol of cardiovascular disease in the Chinese population.In September 2004, the Ministry of Health, CardiovascularDisease Prevention and Treatment Research Center was foundedinFuwaiHospital, being particularlyresponsible for promoting the national cardiovascular disease prevention andcontrol and research efforts. In 2013, theNational Center for Cardiovascular Diseases put into operation, the softwareand hardware facilities had been dramatically improved; the workstation forcardiovascular disease prevention and control was also greatly improved.

Sharing the Efforts of Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Control in China with the World

In 1969, Yingkai Wu spearheaded epidemiologic studies of Shougang after 10years of intervention, showing that stroke morbidity and mortality of theworkers were reduced by 41% and 35% respectively, creating a new cardiovasculardisease community disease prevention and control model and playing asignificant role in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases among people inChina, and established the famous “Capital Steel Corporation Model”. In 1994,WHO recommended this model to other countries via satellite communication. In1981, we started 20-year China-US collaboration in epidemiology, conducted along-term multi-center cohort study, established a network of 16 cardiovascularinstitutes and professional research teams across China. We demonstrated the prevalenceof cardiovascular diseases and the risk factors, proposed and developed thestrategies of disease prevention and control. We led the five nation-widesurveys on hypertension in 1959, 1979-1980, 1991, 2002 and 2015.

We have developed a network covering 2,600 communityhealth care centers in 25 provinces, municipalities, and autonomous regions,which serves 600,000 patients and  3million people, increasing control rate of hypertension from 22% to 71%.

Promotingthe Multi-level Diagnosisand Treatment of CardiovascularDiseases with Internet+

Since 2009, Fuwai Hospital has explored the model ofcommunity health care and referral, and initiated a prevention and controlprogram in collaboration with the Hospital of Beijing Capital InternationalAirport, the Bureau of Police Activity Support of Ministry of Public Security,and the Hospital of Bureau of Geophysical Prospecting of CNPC, and signed apairing assistance agreement with the Health Bureau of 5 districts in Beijing.Experts of Fuwai Hospital consult for communities regularly. We haveestablished three bases for “screening,” “treatment,” and “health education” incommunities in Beijing. In 2013, we organized a national conference for sharingthe experience in prevention and control of cardiovascular diseases incommunity, to optimize the model of cardiovascular diseases management. Since 2015, we have launched a program of early screening and intervention for people at high risk ofcardiovascular diseases, with total funds of RMB 0.67 billion over five yearscovering 500,000 people from 262 counties in 31 provinces. We will screen 4.8million people, and follow-up 1.128 million individualss.

Establishing a National Information Platform of Cardiovascular Diseases

Since 2004, when the Center for Prevention and Controlof Cardiovascular Diseases under the Ministry of Health was set up, FuwaiHospital has established a national information platform for cardiovasculardiseases. We edited and published theReport on Cardiovascular Diseases in China 2005-2015, which was a representativeand authoritative report having widespread influence. We developed the Basic Practical Guidelines forManagement of Hypertension, Chinese Guidelines for the Management of Hypertension, andthe Chinese Guidelines forPrevention and Treatment of Dyslipidemia in Adults. We published thefirst Community DiseasesManagement Courses in China in 2011, developed and disseminated the Chinese Guidelines for EducatingPatients with Hypertension in 2013, and started the revision of the Chinese Guidelines on Prevention andTreatment of Dyslipidemia in Adults” and the Chinese Guidelines for the Management of Hypertension, and developed the nationalstandards of Standards forSudden Cardiac Death as well as the clinical pathway for 33 diseasesof circulatory system in 2015.
