More than one billion people around the world live prematurely with hypertension (high blood pressure), which is a major cause of cardiovascular disease and premature death worldwide. The burden of hypertension is felt disproportionately in low - and middle-income countries, where two-thirds of cases are found, largely due to increased risk factors in those populations in recent decades. What’s more, around half of the people living with hyper
tension are unaware of their condition, putting them at risk of avoidable
medical complications and death.
