'We Ghanaians think highly of education. Through education the researchers of AMC in collaboration with GGD Amsterdam, found during the GHAIA study that almost half of Ghanaians in Amsterdam have high blood pressure and about 81% of participants are overweight. We now know these facts but we still don’t know what causes these high rates of high blood pressure and overweight. In the HELIUS study, the researchers will try to find the answers. By knowing the answers, they will be able to adjust medical health care and develop prevention programmes to meet the specific needs of Ghanaians in Amsterdam.
