The WHO MONICA Project is a multi-center international collaborative. Its objective is to measure trends in cardiovascular mortality and morbidity and to assess the extend to which these trends are related to changes in risk factor levels and/or medical care. In order to reveal myocardial infarction event rate in Bushehr Port, we used WHO-MONICA protocol criteria form registration of this event in three popular hospitals in Bushehr Port. The annual age-standardized event rate for myocardial infarction in men and women were 375 and 111 per 100,000, respectively. In conclusion, the incidence of myocardial infarction in Bushehr Port is higher than developed European countries. Therefore, community-based interventional programs should be implemented in this area to reduce myocardial infarction event rate.
