Members

Our Members

Full and Associate Membership in the World Hypertension League (WHL) is open to organizations, societies, and leagues who are aligned with the assessment, prevention and control of hypertension as well as reductions in non-communicable disease. Full members are organized groups whose hypertension activities cover, in principle, a whole country or a number of regions in larger populous countries. Full members have voting rights. Associate members are organized groups which, though not covering a whole country, also implement activities to assess, prevent, and control hypertension in populations.

If you are interested in membership with the WHL, please download an application form >>
