Abstract: 

Introduction: Cardiovascular diseases are important factors at human death and factor destroys human resources. Health intervention is a service for developing of health and diagnoses or modifies of process diseases. It is necessary that every country regarding to its goals, laws national, interests and standards, considers establishing such a system. A comparison of cardiovascular disease classification systems in selected countries with that in Iran could assist health care policy makers in their efforts to battle cardiovascular diseases.
Methods: This descriptive-comparative study conducted 2007-2008. The cardiovascular diseases of the classification systems in USA, Australia, England and Canada were reviewed in order to prepare an appropriate model for Iran. Data collecting was done through literature review, Internet and email.
Results: The cardiovascular disease classification systems of all the selected countries are national. The selected countries, with the exception of England, utilize a multiaxial classification model, especially designed to reflect the individual requirements of every single one of them. This model employs health care standards, e-learning, annual educational programs, and consultation with experts. Iran lacks such a national classification system for cardiovascular diseases.
Conclusion: It seems essential that the cardiovascular disease classification system in health interventions in Iran be national if improvements are to be made in the fields of prevention and management of these diseases.
