Strategic Objective
Our strategic objective is to produce relevant information to support clinical and population-based policies aimed at controlling CVD. The results of our studies have been explicitly incorporated into the National Strategy for Ischemic Heart Disease Control and into the National Strategy for Obesity Prevention and Control, elaborated by the Ministry of Health. Moreover, our research results have also supported the development of clinical guidelines in this field; specifically, the guidelines of the Spanish Society for Arterial Hypertension, and guidelines of the Spanish Society of Family Medicine, the leading society devoted to primary health care in Spain.
