In May 2019 the YOUNG50 project, co-funded by the European Commission within the 3rd Health Programme was launched. Its aim is to transfer the Italian best practice CARDIO50 experience in Lithuania, Romania, Luxembourg among 50 years olds.
The objectives of CARDIO 50 were to: a) estimate cardiovascular risk among the 50 years old population; b) identify persons with inadequate life styles, new cases of hypertension, hyperglycemia and hyper cholesterolemia; c) activate an integrated model of assistance to help modify or reduce risk factors among healthy subjects; d) promote interventions to change unhealthy lifestyles; e) increase knowledge and perceptions of CVD risks among the general population.
