World Hypertension Day
May 17th 2021
This year's theme is "Measure Your Blood Pressure Accurately, Control It, Live Longer" focusing on combatting low awareness rates worldwide, especially in low to middle income areas, and accurate blood pressure measurement methods.
Increasing hypertension awareness and early control has become even more crucial as managing hypertension reduces the risk of COVID-19 adverse events and mortality. You can help this year's WHD campaign by sharing hypertension information and resources on social media, promoting individual screenings, and engaging with local media.
Please join us in celebrating World Hypertension Day 2021 on 17th May.
