World Hypertension Day

World Hypertension Day

In order to create awareness about hypertension, a leading risk factor for death and disability, World Hypertension League initiated 17th May as World Hypertension Day worldwide. It aims to motivate global action to combat high blood pressure. This year, the theme is a call to “Measure Your Blood Pressure Accurately, Control It, Live Longer.”
More than half of the people in the world living with hypertension are unaware of this condition which is a major cause of cardiovascular disease and premature deaths worldwide.
