Abstract
In order to fulfil their duties, Public health authorities have to rely on valid and recent data on the health status of populations. The CoLaus study helped to update our knowledge regarding the prevalence and management of the main cardiovascular risk factors in the Lausanne population. The results indicate that cardiovascular risk factor management is suboptimal and can still be improved, namely that specific population subgroups could benefit from targeted prevention measures. The CoLaus study also allowed to simulate the effect of different preventive strategies, thus enabling to choose the most (cost) effective ones, an important issue taking into account the current health budget restrictions.
