Épidémiologie des facteurs de risque cardiovasculaire en population tropicale - cas du Bénin

Abstract : An epidemiological transition is observed in tropical areas with the growing of cardiovascular atherosclerosis diseases. The objective of this thesis was to contribute to a better knowledge of the epidemiology of cardiovascular risk factors in tropical area, particularly in Benin. An analysis of prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors in general population was led from Benin national STEPS survey. A systematic review of cardiovascular prospective cohort studies in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) was conducted. Methodology of TAHES (Tanvè health study) cohort was described; a pilot study was implemented. These data show high frequencies of several cardiovascular risk factors in Benin; differences between urban and rural areas were observed. They underline the rarity of cardiovascular cohort studies in ASS. Besides, they support the hypothesis of cardiovascular cohort feasibility in general population in Benin.
