Rheumatic Heart Disease: forgotten but not gone

This World Heart Federation video describes rheumatic heart disease as a chronic heart condition, caused by rheumatic fever, that needlessly kills and disables people living in extreme poverty. High prevalence of the disease has become a marker of poverty and an important factor feeding growing health inequities. Speakers include Jonathan Carapetis and other world experts in rheumatic heart disease.
