This study aims to:
In an area with high CVD risks, the study is highly important for the ethnic people in conflict situation where CVD risk reduction through volunteer workers would be implemented and tested – from epidemiology as well as equity perspectives.
Control of CVD risk factors requires consistent, longitudinal access to medications. Most CVD care models are based on professional clinicians and health facilities. However, given the prolonged nature of conflict, this is simply not possible in many regions — and many of these regions have a high burden of CVD prior to conflict. It is hoped that the research will identify key best practices in creating a locally led VHW programme focusing on mitigating CVD risk in eastern Myanmar, a region affected by prolonged conflict. The study envisages to develop an approach that might be replicated in other regions, including an explicit approach involving affected communities and regional health leadership (in this case, leadership of local health organisations), in order to develop a locally relevant programme.
