A 6-month community based cluster-randomised controlled trial was conducted on 417 adults aged 50-65 years with Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) in Vietnam. At the end of the 6-month program, 175 (81.8%) intervention and 162 (79.8%) control participants completed the post-test assessment. Results showed that the intervention program reached and engaged the majority of participants, with significant improvements in physical activity and dietary behaviours, successfully reduced MetS proportion and enhanced several metabolic parameters for the intervention group.
