The WHO-ISH risk prediction chart criteria of application [8] only consider individuals aged 40 or older.
The WHO-ISH prediction chart for the Africa D region was used to classify each participant regarding the individual absolute cardiovascular risk [8], based on sex (male or female), age (40-49, 50-59 and [greater than or equal to] 60 years), current smoking status (nonsmoker or smoker), systolic blood pressure (SBP) (120-139, 140-159, 160-179, and [greater than or equal to] 180 mmHg), total blood cholesterol (4, 5, 6,7, and 8 mmol/l), and diabetes (presence or absence, considering the WHO cut point of 6.9 mmol/l [14]).
The WHO-ISH prediction charts estimate the 10-year risk of a fatal or nonfatal major cardiovascular event (myocardial infarction or stroke) expressed in five categories--[less than or equal to] 10% (low), 10-19% (moderate), 20-29% (high), and [greater than or equal to]30% (very high)--in people who do not have established cardiovascular diseases [8].
The use of the WHO-ISH risk prediction chart has already been proven as more cost effective than other approaches that make treatment decisions based on individual risk factor thresholds only, especially for hypertension management [7, 21-23].
In this prediction chart, we included the total cholesterol measurement; however, the WHO-ISH chart offers the possibility of not using this measurement [8].
