Description: The goal of this project is to understand inequalities in accessing and continuing effective care for cardiovascular diseases in low-, middle- and high income countries. The objectives of the study are to assess the scale and nature of inequalities in influencing the use of evidence-based CVD prevention measures and treatments for cardiovascular disease (hypertension, stable angina, acute myocardial infarction, heart failure, stroke), and identify the socio-demographic, economic, and community determinants of variation within countries. Research methods include statistical analysis of data from the PURE data.
