World Hypertension Day

More than one billion people around the world live with hypertension (high blood pressure), a major cause of cardiovascular disease and premature death. The World Health Organization also stress that around half of people living with hypertension are unaware of their condition, putting them at risk of avoidable medical complications and poor health outcomes.

World Hypertension Day aims to raise public awareness of the signs, symptoms and prevention methods for this condition.
