The intervention effects of a community-based hypertension control programme in two rural South African towns : the CORIS study.
The obiective of the hypertension programme of the Coronary disk Factor Study (CORIS) was to evaluate the effectiveness of the first 4 years of community-based intervention.
The hypertension intervention model comprised a blood pressure station where the whole population was screened for hypertension, nondrug management was provided and hypertensives were monitored after referral to general practitioners for drug therapy.
Two levels of intervention were maintained:
In the high-intensity intervention town (N=2278) hypertensives were actively followed up, and in the low-intensity intervention town (N=2260) no active follow-up procedure existed.
A third town acted as control (N=2290).
