Prevention of CVD in Nairobi Slums

CLAHRC Africa collaborators at the African Population Health Research Center have recently produced a health economic model for cardiovascular risk reduction in slum areas (abstracted at a recent conference). Populating the model with evidence from the literature suggests that an intervention to prevent hypertension, costing only $1 per person per year, would be both effective and cost-effective. The full publication is awaited with great interest.
