RTSL represents a team of global health experts working with governments to assist in implementing evidence-based strategies that allow their citizens to lead the healthiest lives possible.

The team at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health provides support for two core programs (hypertension control and sodium reduction) of the Cardiovascular Health Initiative at RTSL.

For each of these two programs, we provide expert technical support in operational aspects of program development; provide expertise in program evaluation and research methodology and support peer-reviewed publications; provide analytic support on scientific matters; provide training in the target countries; and build implementation research capacity in the target countries.

LINKS is a global community for cardiovascular health created by RTSL. LINKS provides access to peer networking, events and webinars, and technical and funding support. Membership in the LINKS community is free and is designed for those working to improve cardiovascular health in developing global settings. Consider joining the LINKS community today!
