Lucia Davie Mbulaje Kaipa is Senior Nursing Officer, NCD’ s coordinator, Queen Elizabeth central Hospital under Malawi Ministry of Health, Malawi Africa.

My passion in hypertension developed in 2011 when I was nurse in-charge of a female medical ward at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital. It was Monday morning, very busy day. To my attention was a very old man sitting by the bedside, holding the hands of an equally old lady who was unconscious. I went to greet him. He responded that I should do everything in my power to bring back his wife. “I can sell all my harvest and live stocks at home and give the money to you if that’s the cost,” he pleaded.
