Cardiovascular Diseases


The cardiovascular health activities are in response to the growing burden of these diseases due to the social, demographic, epidemiologic and health care transitions that have led to cardiovascular diseases being the number one cause of death in the country.

The activities are dedicated to:

  • Providing a platform for cardiovascular health research that is relevant to resource-limited settings
  • Focusing on key individual determinants (tobacco, diet, physical activity and psychological factors) as well as underlying social determinants (‘causes of causes’)
  • Providing a robust training environment that will foster a new generation of scholars engaged in cardiovascular research
  • Enhancing the translation and dissemination of research findings among vulnerable populations
  • Achieving a reputation for excellence in cardiovascular health research
