Heart failure (HF) is a global epidemic in health care and a leading cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide. In Asian countries, causes of mortality and morbidity have shifted or have been shifting from infectious diseases and/or nutritional deficiencies to lifestyle-related diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, cancers and diabetes, in conjunction with the transition from developing to developed countries during the past decades (so-called "the epidemiologic transition"). Because the effect of this epidemiologic transition varies among countries, the etiology, prevalence, management and outcomes of HF also differ among the countries. Thus, we need to assemble and comprehensively analyze the available evidence to date for daily HF practice in Asia and to systematically conduct future epidemiologic approaches to establishing appropriate prevention programs against the burden of HF in Asia. This review article will briefly update the epidemiology of HF in Asia.
