Description:
This report is about the first two years of the Kilkenny Health Project . During that time we have learned a great deal about Kilkenny, about the way people live their lives and the manner in which they are at risk of developing coronary heart disease. Here we present some of the background to the Project, some of the results of the baseline survey and some of the activities of the health promotion programme. This report does not however contain details of the future work of the Project. Now that there is a greater awareness of the extent of the problem of coronary heart disease, it is hoped to elicit the active support of a wide range of people in Kilkenny to draw up such plans. It would be desirable to develop policies appropriate to Kilkenny in relation to healthy eating, smoking, physical activity and high blood pressure. Ideally, such policies would be adopted by the South-Eastern Health Board, by Kilkenny Corporation and Kilkenny County Council, by schools and by commercial and other groups in Kilkenny. This would represent a commitment by such organisations to make the changes which are necessary in order to help people make healthy choices.
