In a nutshell: The primary prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a policy priority and should include the aim of reducing health inequalities. This CVD policy model was developed using data from the Scottish Heart Health Extended Cohort. It estimates the impact of risk factor modification on CVD events and non-CVD mortality to predict life expectancy, taking into account socio-economic deprivation. This policy tool can be used to estimate the impact of primary prevention interventions on life expectancy. It can also assess the impact of interventions on inequalities.
