Hypertension is a major cause of premature death and a leading cause of cardiovascular diseases globally. Heart diseases, renal failure, stroke, premature deaths, and disability mostly if not all contribute to the cardiovascular burden and thus pose a public health issue worldwide. The trends in hypertension are similar globally with a high prevalence noted in low and medium-income countries. Studies have identified smoking, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, alcohol consumption, overweight or obesity, and sedentary lifestyle as modifiable risk factors in these populations. However, hypertension remains a substantial public health concern despite providers’ engagement in multi-component hypertension treatment and patient involvement in self-care. Hypertension is a landmark in clinical settings and its management is of great significance to practicing clinicians and the medical society. My poster will provide an overview of hypertension as a global epidemic and the role of multi-component interventions in its management.
