In September 2011, the US Department of Health and Human Services announced a new initiative to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes in the United States in the next 5 years. This campaign will implement proven, effective, and inexpensive interventions in both clinical and community settings. In clinical practice, it will improve management of the ABCS (aspirin use for high risk patients, blood pressure control, cholesterol management and smoking cessation). In community settings, it will enhance efforts to reduce smoking, improve nutrition and reduce high blood pressure.
