Cardiovascular risk factors in childhood and adolescence are dramatically increasing due to sociodemographic changes, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic. These will create major health issues in the next generation. High- risk pregnancies, fetal programming, obesity, arterial hypertension, lifestyle factors such as physical activity, sedentary behavior, nutrition, and even social problems influence health and healthcare of children and have to be considered in effective prevention strategies.
This issue will focus on studies of cardiovascular risk factors of in childhood and adolescence, and on the impact of corresponding prevention programs over the life span.
