Sustainable model for cardiovascular health by adjusting lifestyle and treatment with economic perspective in settings of urban poverty (SCALE UP)

Program: Health Challenges and Systems

This is a three year implementation research project that builds on previous observational research in the same study population of adults who are resident in the Nairobi Urban Health and Demographic Surveillance System (NUHDSS). The intervention has several components aimed at reducing cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk within a continuum of care framework.

These components include mass screening of all adults older than 35 years, CVD risk assessment, individual counseling for those with low risk; referral for those with moderate to high risk; and care and treatment at a specially established clinic, with incentives to enhance adherence to the care regime.
