Rheumatic Heart Disease
We performed a population-based cross-sectional study of RHD among schoolchildren in the Sunsari district in Eastern Nepal.
The study was accompanied by a public campaign reporting on RHD in local print media and local radio.
Between December 2012 and September 2014 a total of 5467 eligible children from 26 randomly selected schools were invited to undergo active surveillance for RHD.
Results will be presented in the Best Poster Session at ESC 2015 in London.
