Introduction. The cardiovascular diseases, at the origin of 4 deaths out of 10, remain the leading cause of mortality in Europe. According to WHO, this tendency will spread in 2020 on a worldwide scale. These pathologies are avoidable on the whole by the adoption of healthy lifestyles. To prevent occurred of the cardiovascular affections is, more than ever, a major goal of Public health. The transborder "Great Area", localised zone in the middle of Europe between the very high cardiovascular risks of the North and the weaker risks of the South, constitutes a zone privileged for the action against the cardiovascular diseases. However, there to date does not exist any joint action in this geographical area. The Public Research centre of the Health of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg, the School of Public health of the University of Liege, the Clinical Center of Investigation of the University hospital of Nancy and the University hospital of the Saar wish to be linked and mutualiser their means available and their complementary competences in order to evaluate and to act on the cardiovascular health of the citizens of the "Great Area". Over one 3 years period the Nutrition project, Environment and Cardiovascular Health (NESCAV) aims at creating on the level of the Great Area a transborder alliance of prevention and promotion of cardiovascular health. This great multicentric transverse investigation and poly-set of themes will make it possible to collect relevant data on cardiovascular health of the population of the Great area.
Objective of this biomedical research project: It is about multicentric, transverse a Européenne epidemiological study aiming, through biological questionnaires and analyses, to collect information on the cardiovascular risk factors within the Great Area.
