ISH would like to highlight thefabulous efforts of the Indonesian Society of Hypertension on World Health Day 2013 (7 April).
The theme of World Health Day 2013 was 'Blood Pressure Take Control'. The Indonesian Society of Hypertension initiaited and co-ordinated many activities on 7 April to build public awareness of hypertension, to include blood pressure & BMI measurement, a fun walk and a talk show on hypertension. These events attended by around 2,000 people.
