Abstract :
South Asian population has a high incidence of coronary artery disease. There are a number of risk factors that are almost unique to the south Asians. The classical risk factors do not account for such high rates of CHD as are present in south Asia. We have discussed some important aspects of CHD that can help in improving prevention in south Asia.
