Prevention Research

Heart disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory diseases, and cancer are the leading causes of death and disability worldwide, representing 60% of all deaths. All of these diseases are linked to preventable causes, and it is therefore vital to understand the best strategies for their prevention. By developing and implementing successful, cost-effective interventions, it will be possible to reduce people’s risk of developing and dying from these major diseases.
