Résumé
A rising frequency of cardiovascular diseases and related risk factors has been documented in Seychelles. This epidemiological transition to chronic diseases is believed to result from the aging of the population and from changes in lifestyle associated with a rapidly improving standard of living. Since 1990 a long-term national collaborative programme has been established for the prevention and control of cardiovascular diseases. It has been designed with a view to implementing a combination of population-based and specific, high-risk target-group strategies. Objectives have been formulated, and culturally acceptable multisectoral activities have been devised, along with plans for the monitoring of cardiovascular diseases and risk factors and for the evaluation of the programme as it proceeds.
