Epidemiological transition and health impact in North Africa

Objective

A multidisciplinary research on the epidemiological transition in two North African countries will characterise the present transition stage, its consequences on the burden of disease, the underlyingindividual and societal determinants to help design adapted, feasible and cost-effective strategies to face this new reality on the mid to long term. Key features of the research are: a precise assessment of the actual burden of lifestyle related non communicable chronic diseases including an in-depth analysis of the environment and lifestyle risk factors at population level; an investigation of the different actors (population, health personnel, decision-makers) attitudes and practices towards the changing epidemiological situation; a risk approach methodology taking both epidemiological evidence and public opinion into account to design jointly, with decision-makers sectoral and multisectoral intervention strategies to improve health care and promote healthy lifestyles relevant to the context.
