The program of multifactorial primary prophylaxis was carried out for 5 years among the non-organized male population aged 40-59 years. A possibility of the disease control was demonstrated in respect to such risk factors as arterial hypertension and tobacco-smoking. No substantial changes were discovered in the prevalence of hypercholesterolemia, overweight, low physical activity as well as in the lethality due to coronary heart disease or in the rate of new cases of myocardial infarction. In the group of patients suffering from coronary heart disease, measures aimed at multifactorial secondary prophylaxis promoted a significant reduction of the lethality due to that disease and of the rate of new cases of myocardial infarction since the third year of intervention.
