Projects & Resources
The Abundant Health project is a community-based prevention and control program targeting hypertension and diabetes in five locations in the Tan Phu District in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
The Step It Up: Wearables for Health project in Ghana is studying whether patients with hypertension accept and use physical activity wristbands to monitor and produce data on their condition.
The objectives of FHI 360's cardiovascular disease (CVD) pilot intervention in Ghana are to determine the prevalence of CVD risk factors; strengthen the capacity of health facilities to identify and manage CVD; initiate facility and community-based primary and secondary prevention activities; and engage policy makers in the primary prevention of NCDs.
