The National Cardiovascular Disease Database (NCVD) is a service supported by the Ministry of Health (MOH) to collect information about cardiovascular disease in Malaysia, which will enable us to know the incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD), and to evaluate its risk factors and treatment in the country. The NCVD was established to integrate various CVD databases available in the country to achieve nation-wide cardiovascular database. The database refers to the ongoing systematic collection, analysis and interpretation of cardiovascular disease data essential to the planning, implementation and evaluation of clinical and public health services, closely integrated with dissemination of these data to those who need to know. The final link in the chain is the application of these data to the treatment, prevention and control of cardiovascular disease. A database system includes a functional capacity for data collection, analysis and dissemination linked to clinical and public health programs. The NCVD was officially launched on the 31st of March 2006 by Dato’ Dr Ghani Mohamed Din, the Deputy Director General of Health Malaysia during the 10th Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) of National Heart Association of Malaysia (NHAM) in Hilton Kuala Lumpur/ Le Meridien, Kuala Lumpur Sentral.



The NCVD is sponsored by the Ministry of Health Malaysia and co-sponsored by National Heart Association of Malaysia (NHAM). The Clinical Research Centre (CRC) is providing the technical support in the form of clinical epidemiology expertise, biostatistics and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) services.



The objectives of the NCVD are to: 

Describe the natural history of Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) and Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)
Determine effectiveness of treatments for ACS and PCI
Monitor safety and harm of products and services used in the treatment of ACS and PCI
Evaluating access to and quality of treatment services for ACS and PCI
