World Hypertension Day on May 17, 2024.

We hope you can participate in this global hypertension awareness celebration, with the theme, “Measure Your Blood Pressure Accurately, Control It, Live Longer”, promoting increased awareness of high blood pressure and accuracy in blood pressure measurement, toward the control of hypertension related NCDs, especially in low to middle income areas. To help achieve this, WHL members and partners are encouraged to participate in WHD via blood pressure screenings, calls to actions, community events, media releases, and awareness campaigns worldwide. These screenings and education on lifestyle modification and dietary salt reduction help reduce the risk for stroke, cardiovascular disease, and kidney disease in communities worldwide.
