Prognostic value of tentatively identified levels of risk (coronary heart disease, risk factors, their combinations) for total, and cardiovascular mortality and myocardial infarction and stroke incidence was evaluated within the framework of the multifactoral coronary heart disease prevention programme. It was found that subjects without CHD in the presence of 3 risk factors or more represented a group at the same high risk for myocardial infarction and death as CHD patients without myocardial infarction, which requires that this population be comprehensively medically monitored. This multifactoral prevention programme has made it possible to reduce the level of a relative risk in subjects with CHD or those without CHD in the presence of 3 risk factors or more in the population of males aged 40-59 years. It may be thus expected mortality rates from chronic noncommunicable disease to be reduced among the general population.
