Brief description Cardiovascular disease (disease of the heart and blood vessels) is the leading cause of death world-wide. However, the burden of this disease is significantly greater in some populations, including Indigenous Australians and South Asians (Indians, Pakistanis or Bangladeshis). This project therefore aims to improve our understanding of CVD risk in these populations, and to develop better clinical assessment tools that will assist in the early detection and management of CVD in these individuals.
