In this narrative article, we delve into the intersection of climate change and the rising incidence of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) in Iran, shedding light on the urgent need for comprehensive action to protect the nation's health and heritage. Against the backdrop of Iran's diverse landscapes and cultural heritage, the article sheds light on the profound impacts of climate change on public health. Rising temperatures, more frequent heatwaves, deteriorating air quality, and disruptions in food security are identified as key climate-related factors intensifying the prevalence of CVDs. Vulnerable populations, including low-income communities and marginalized groups, face a disproportionate burden. The narrative emphasizes the urgent need for compre-hensive action, encompassing healthcare infrastructure, public awareness campaigns, and climate adaptation measures. Climate justice emerges as a critical element, ensuring equitable access to resources and healthcare. The conclusion calls for collective efforts to protect cardiovascular health, uphold climate justice, and secure a sustainable future for Iran and the world
