“Know Your Numbers” in the fight against Hypertension and High Blood Pressure. Your life depends on it!
The World Hypertension League (WHL) is a charitable organization dedicated to the prevention and control of hypertension globally. World Hypertension Day will be celebrated on May 17th – May 24th, 2016. The theme for World Hypertension Day is Know Your Numbers. The goal is to increase high blood pressure (BP) awareness in all populations around the world.
The World Hypertension League (WHL) in partnership with the International Society of Hypertension (ISH) is organizing this annual celebration. Increased blood pressure is the leading cause of deaths and disability around the world. One half of blood pressure related disease occurs in people with higher levels of blood pressure even within the normal range. Hypertension now disproportionately impacts low and middle-income countries.
