As we are aware, South-Asia presents a cardiovascular health scenario which is unique in almost every aspect- epidemiology, genetics, patient beliefs and philosophies, availability of resources and infrastructure, etc. The Journal of Clinical and Preventive Cardiology aims to help disseminate the knowledge about this huge but distinct burden of disease, with an emphasis on encouraging research that is directly relevant to our population. The goal is to not only address the real world scenario that arise in the clinical care of the patients with heart diseases and its myriad nuances, but also to lay the framework for prevention- primordial, primary and secondary. The journal is also expected to serve as a sounding board for clinicians to raise their questions and get them answered by the experts.
