FEVRIER is an observational study based on a questionnaire completed by investigators for each hospitalization in cardiology unit during the month of February.The investigator is a physician of the participating hospital.
FEVRIER evaluates the modalities of care management. It will take place in cardiology units of hospitals of sub-Saharian countries one month per year (month of February) during 5 years.
The investigator will thoroughly complete:
- one information form describing the hospital and the department
- one questionnaire (2o questions) for each hospitalized patient
Patients with at least one day of hospitalization will be enrolled in the study. On the first day of February, all patients already hospitalized will be enrolled and all patients hospitalized in the last day of February will be followed until their discharge. thus, data collection will start 1st day of investigation, during February and will continue until the discharge of the last enrolled patient.

- Other: observation of current care
The study FEVRIER (survey of hospitalizations in cardiology units in sub-Saharan Africa) aims to establish a description of sub-Saharan standard of care, in order to get a cross sectional analysis (globally and per country) and a longitudinal analysis (evolution during 5 years).
- Description of patients in cardiology unit in sub-Saharan Africa:socio-demographic characterization [ Time Frame: 5 years ]low/medium low / medium high/high
- Description of patients in cardiology unit in sub-Saharan Africa:causes of hospitalization [ Time Frame: 5 years ]one answer with main reason for hospitalization
- Description of patients in cardiology unit in sub-Saharan Africa: co-morbidities [ Time Frame: 5 years ]cardiovascular risk factors/history of cardiovascular disease/kidney disease/cancer/alcoholism/psychiatric disorder/sickle cell anemia/HIV:Hepatitis/tuberculosis/other
- Description of patients in cardiology unit in sub-Saharan Africa: hospital examinations [ Time Frame: 5 years ]blood test/ECG/Chest Xray/Echocardiography/Coronarography/Brain scan
- Description of patients in cardiology unit in sub-Saharan Africa: duration of hospitalization [ Time Frame: 5 years ]number of days spent in cardiology departement
- Description of patients in cardiology unit in sub-Saharan Africa: discharge diagnosis [ Time Frame: 5 years ]medical conclusion
- number of patients with heart failure [ Time Frame: 5 years ]to measure the evolution of the number of patients with heart failure over 5 years
- number of patients with myocardial infarction [ Time Frame: 5 years ]to measure the evolution of the number of patients with myocardial infarction over 5 years
- number of patients with atrial fibrillation [ Time Frame: 5 years ]to measure the evolution of the number of patients with atrial fibrillation over 5 years
