It is the illness which occurs due to excess deposit of cholesterol and other substances in artery (Ball, Weaver and Kiel, 2013). Current report will compare and contrast the historical and present context of coronary heart disease in Australia.
Coronary heart disease is a disease in which surplus of cholesterol block arteries or arteries become narrowed and that creates problem in oxygen blood supply to heart. According to published statement by National Heart foundation of Australia various psycho social risk factors increased risk of CHO. As per the report of 2011 above 18 age people got suffer from this health issue. 2.3 million lives were suffering at that time with CHD and most of the people faced angina which was caused because of this disease.

Even as age grow ratio and condition remain critical in both sexes. 8611 lives faced heart attack in 2013 which was on average 24 persons each day.
According to the report of National health services approx 11% people were found in the condition of hypertension or 2.1 million lives were suffering from it which is the main reason of CHD. 18% people reported long term cardiovascular problem as per NHS survey 2004-2005. In the recession time people were suffering from economic problems and caused great risk of coronary heart problem and related mortality. Health care organizations were not that much aware about the effective treatment process.

Survey of WHO in 2012 showed that 60% lives were having diabetes. Coronary heart disease is leading cause of death in Australia (Henderson and et.al, 2014). Accounting records of 2011 discussed that 36% death took place because of this disease. In 2004 19% males death and 18% female death accounted because of ischemic heart disease.
Over the period medical facilities have been developed, professionals are much more aware with the surgical equipment. Even with the awareness about various health issues people now giving focus on diet, physical activities and life style. Health care organizations are continuously organizing health camps and making people aware regarding risk factors and consequences of heart problems. By this way from the history it was found that presently the rate of death is low than previous year. In 2014 local health agencies opened more hospitals in Australia with the support of NHS.
