The World Hypertension League (WHL) has been running a very successful World Hypertension Day campaign for a number of years but undiagnosed hypertension continues to be a global burden on society, governments, health care professionals and individuals.
To address this crisis, it is imperative that we increase the levels of awareness among the world’s hypertensive population.
Hence WHL has deemed the month of May, in conjunction with World Hypertension Day for measurement of BP.
The aim is for 25 million people worldwide to be screened.
MSH has undertaken to recruit as many doctors and other HCPs as possible to help screen BP and contribute to this number. We do hope all members of MSH will participate in this worthwhile activity.
Prof Datin Dr Chia Yook Chin together with Assoc Prof Ching Siew Mooi are co-ordinating this screening programme. If you are interested to help screen please contact either Dr Chia or Dr Ching for more details (contact details as below).
