CLINICAL IMPACT AND ECONOMIC FEATURES OF A COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKER-LED LOW-SODIUM SALT INTERVENTION TO REDUCE BLOOD PRESSURE AT THE POPULATION LEVEL IN RURAL BANGLADESH: A CLUSTER-RANDOMIZED TRIAL
Timeline: 2022-03-01 - 2023-12-31
PI: Dr. Malabika Sarker
Coordinator: Mushfiqur Rahman
Objective:The primary objective of this study is to assess the effectiveness of a low-sodium salt substitute (LSSS) (a compound in which a percentage of the sodium chloride [NaCl] is replaced by potassium chloride [KCl] and/or magnesium sulfate [MgSO4]) for blood pressure reduction in a general population of adults (aged 18 years and older) in rural Bangladesh. Several methods of intervention delivery will be compared in separate study arms to determine the optimal approach for low-sodium salt provision in this setting. Besides, our study will include a study of the willingness-to-pay of our target population for an LSSS.
