  • The size of the three stages refers to the size of the population in each stage. The biggest section is stage 1 and the smallest section is stage 3. However, it is stage 3 that has the highest intervention cost even though it accounts for only some 25% of deaths. Proper stratification of risk in stage 1 by identifying cardiovascular and renal risk factors and providing early detection of target organ damage will enable interventions, including those for cardiometabolic risk, to be more effective and more comprehensive.
