Epidemiology of cardiovascular disease in rural Vietnam

In the context of transitional Vietnam, even though cardiovascular disease (CVD) has been shown to result in a huge burden of fatality and morbidity in hospitals, little is understood regarding the degree of its burden, risk factor levels and its connection with socio-demographic status in the over-all population. This particular dissertation offers a basic understanding into population-based knowledge of the CVD epidemiology in rural Vietnam and plays a role in the advancement of techniques for overseeing it. The supreme objective of the report is to facilitate the formulation of evidence-based health interventions for lowering the load of the CVD epidemic in Vietnam and elsewhere. This job was positioned in Bavi district, a rural community in the north of Vietnam. Reports on cause-specific mortality and risk factors were conducted within the framework of an ongoing Demographic Surveillance System (DSS) (called FilaBavi). The cause-specific mortality research used a verbal autopsy (VA) technique to recognize reasons for fatality in FilaBavi during 1999-2003…
