To The Editor:
We firmly agree with Boffa et al. that there is mounting evidence that proactively managing coronary risk factors alongside standard medical care are of great benefit for patients with cardiovascular disease. In parallel, advancements in knowledge, medical technology and pharmacotherapy mean the number of people surviving acute coronary events is increasing and as a matter of social justice the demand for effective secondary prevention is intensifying. Therefore, improving equity of and access to effective secondary prevention interventions for all with established disease is a pressing and urgent priority.
