OCDE : “France : The mortality due to cardiovascular diseases (CVD) is the lowest amongst OECD countries”

“The mortality from CVD has decreased over the past 50 years, reaching the lowest in the OECD after Japan, at 185 per 100 000 population in 2009, 38% lower than the OECD average of 299 in 2011 (Figure 1). Likewise, potential years of life lost, a commonly used measure of premature mortality, at 343 per 100 000 population for diseases of the circulatory system in 2011, is 41% lower than the OECD average of 581 (by using the age limit of 70). The reported prevalence of diabetes is also low at 5.6%, compared to an OECD average of 6.9%. The number of patients with end-stage kidney failure (ESKF), often caused by diabetes and hypertension, is 104 per 100 000 population, close to the OECD average of 101.”
