Heart to Heart: Norwegian-Russian multilevel educational collaboration in CVD Epidemiology

IPCDR - The International Project on Cardiovascular Disease in Russia - has population samples from Arkhangelsk and Novosibirsk. Together with the Tromsø Study 7 these studies have laid basis for Heart to Heart - a joint plan to compare, identify and quantify differences in CVD and its determinants in forming the huge difference in CVD mortality between Russia and Norway.

The project described here covers capacity building and mobility. You can read more about Heart to Heart research here
