The continuously increasing prevalence of cardio-metabolic diseases (including cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, and chronic renal failure) is a major health problem in developed countries which is mainly caused by an unhealthy lifestyle. Most important lifestyle related causes of morbidity and mortality are smoking, obesity and physical inactivity.
The SPIMEU project aims at contributing to the reduction of cardio-metabolic morbidity and mortality in EU Member States by establishing the feasibility of implementing innovative evidence based selective prevention actions.
Our research consist of:
- Finding out what the determinants are for successful implementation of selective prevention of cardio-metabolic diseases?
- Establishing the feasibility of implementing innovative evidence based selective prevention actions in five EU Member States (NLD, SWE, DNK, CZE, GRE), representing various health care systems.
