Pacific churchgoersEarly detection and better treatment will reduce the health burden of cardiovascular  disease (CVD) and diabetes in New Zealand.

We will develop improved methods of early diagnosis for CVD and prediabetes for individuals. We will also improve existing risk prediction techniques including finding ways to make screening equitable, particularly for Māori and Pacific populations.

By identifying the disparities in CVD risk factor management, particularly with co-morbidities (where people are suffering multiple conditions), we will develop more effective treatments.
