Baseline study in CVD risk factors at Sindhuli

26 April, 2016

NFDF conducted a descriptive, community based, cross-sectional study between January and April 2014 in Tinkanya Village Development Committee, Sindhuli, Nepal. It was a baseline survey for the planning and implementation of preventive and promotive activities of non-communicable disease in the community. Study site is an extremely hilly, remote, rural community where mostly indigenous people live. Developmental markers like roads, electricity and health facilities still remain almost nonexistence. A part from livestock and farming, remittance is the major source of livelihood. Most working age men have migrated to city/abroad for better employment.
