  1. Twenty-year trends in coronary risk factors in North Karelia and in other areas of Finland.

    Article - En anglais


    The North Karelia Project, a major demonstration programme for coronary heart disease (CHD) prevention, began in the eastern province of North Karelia in Finland in 1972.

    A number of other national CHD prevention activities have also been undertaken particularly since 1977.

    In the 1980s, a national strategy was developed for CHD prevention.

    This paper reports the 20-year changes in risk factors in North Karelia and in the original reference area of the project and the 10-year changes in a third area in southwestern Finland.


    The results are based on comparable surveys of cross-sectional population samples, aged 30-59 years, every fifth year since 1972.
