Hypertension & Public Health

Increasing rates of cardiovascular diseases are forcing each and every country to revise their public health policies to counter this emerging epidemic. Over the years, hypertension has become a major issue for public health. Statistics show that hypertension has become one of the leading causes of death in elderly people. The rates are relatively higher in developing countries. Therefore, adequate measures are required to be taken by the government to fight this epidemic. Creating awareness in people, educating doctors about the on-going research and findings in treatment and therapy may help to reduce its growing rate. Initiatives such as screening camps, awareness camps are going to help a lot in effective control but it will require much support from the people also. Community participations should be launched in each area. Life style modifications are immensely beneficial and can be considered as the primary line of defence against hypertension. Effective lifestyle changes can help reducing the use of antihypertensive medicines. Thus effective strategies should be made in order to help people to get educated about these lifestyle modifications and to get adapted to these changes. We aim to cover the recent trends related to hypertension and public health in this session.
