World Hypertension Day

Congratulations and thank you to all those who participated and shared in the celebration of World Hypertension Day (WHD) held on May 17, 2023!  This year, the theme promoted increasing 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 were encouraged to participate in WHD via blood pressure screenings, calls to actions, community events, media releases, and awareness campaigns worldwide. Many nations provided screenings, awareness and education on lifestyle modification and dietary salt reduction to help reduce the risk for stroke, cardiovascular disease, and kidney disease in their communities, through their healthcare providers and media releases.

This year’s event was truly memorable, thanks to all of our members, partners and colleagues!
