The purpose

The aim of the FOCUS project is to test the Fixed Dose Combination concept for cardiovascular prevention in populations of different socio-economic characteristics. At the same time, FOCUS aims to understand the factors determining inappropriate prescribing for secondary cardiovascular prevention and those for poor patients adherence to treatment. This will allow FOCUS to establish recommendations for a better use of medication in patients with ischemic heart disease. In addition, after a successful completion of FOCUS, secondary prevention medication will be available and affordable for a large number of patients in both developed as well as developing countries. There are two Phases in this study: Phase 1: Is a descriptive, non interventional study. Phase 2: Is an interventional, randomized trial with prospective economic evaluation.
