Objectives
To produce representative Hong Kong data on established and newer cardiovascular risk factors to facilitate implementation of appropriate population wide coronary heart disease prevention strategies; to facilitate follow up studies in 5-10 years time to assess effects of such community wide intervention; to understand the reasons for the dramatically lower rates of coronary heart disease in Hong Kong compared to Singapore; to correlate the findings in this study with details of dietary intake in Hong Kong and with cardiovascular risk factors in patients with established coronary heart disease.
