One of the goals of any international society is to represent the interests of its constituents around the world.
The International Society of Hypertension (ISH) has a unique responsibility in this regard, which is achieved in large part through the ISH International Forum and the ISH Regional Advisory Groups (RAGs) – click here. The International Forum of the ISH embodies and nurtures the global nature of the ISH and was first established in 1992. Today the International Forum is chaired by Neil Poulter from London, UK. It is a consultative forum, the mandate of which is to establish effective liaison between the ISH and National Societies of Hypertension or Councils of High Blood Pressure Research. It also provides a unique infrastructure and platform for networking and “cross-talk” between Societies.
An ISH Affiliated Society logo (shown right) has been created for use by national and regional societies in their print and promotional material. Please contact the ISH Secretariat should you wish to receive a copy.
