FPD is registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) as a Private Higher Education Institution (PHEI) in terms of Section 54(1)(c) of the Act and Regulation 16(4)(a).
The Management of Cardiovascular diseases is a major contributor to health challenges faced by countries such as South Africa. In 1999 CVD contributed to a third of global deaths with 78% of these deaths taking place in low and middle-income countries.
