History & Significance of World Hypertension Day

World Hypertension Day was first observed on the 14th of May 2005. Since 2006, the day has been observed on 17th May. This day came into existence to initiate the awareness of hypertension as people don’t have proper knowledge regarding this disorder. World Hypertension Day was started by the World Hypertension League (WHL).

WHL is an umbrella to eighty-five organizations of national hypertension leagues and societies. The day commenced by increasing the awareness of hypertension. This was particularly essential because of the lack of proper knowledge among hypertensive patients. 

In 2005, as the inaugural action, the theme was simply ‘Awareness of high blood pressure.’ The 2006 theme was ‘Treat to the goal’, with a focus on keeping blood pressure under control. The advised blood pressures are less than 140/90 mmHg for the hypertensive population without any other disorder. It is the same for those who don’t have hypertension. Less than 130/80 mmHg for those with chronic kidney disease or diabetes mellitus. These are the cut-off values approved by Canadian and International guidelines.

The 2007 WHD theme was ‘Healthy diet, healthy blood pressure.’ Through such particular themes, the WHL aims to raise awareness not only of hypertension but also of aspects supporting an upswing in the incidence of hypertension and on directions to suppress it. For public awareness, the theme for 2008 was ‘Measure your blood pressure at home.’ New reports confirm the accuracy, ease, and safety of blood pressure measurements using home monitors. For the five years from 2013 to 2018, ‘Know Your Numbers’ was the WHD theme to increase awareness about high blood pressure in all communities around the globe.

World Hypertension Day 2023 Theme

This year, 2023, the World Hypertension Day theme is “Measure Your Blood Pressure Accurately, Control It, Live Longer” focusing on combatting low awareness rates worldwide, especially in low to middle income areas, and accurate blood pressure measurement methods.

This is the theme which has been continued since 2021. The theme’s longevity is enough to emphasize the necessity of an accurate diagnosis of hypertension.

Initiative taken by PAHO & WHO to Prevent Hypertension 

To promote awareness of hypertension, Pan American Health Organization started a free online course on accurate automated blood pressure (BP) measurement to check BP monitor accuracy in 16 languages.

To achieve the global target to reduce the prevalence of hypertension by 25% by 2025, WHO and the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention launched the Global Hearts Initiative in 2016. With its five technical packages – HEARTS (manage cardiovascular diseases), MPOWER (control tobacco), Active (increase physical activity), SHAKE (reduce salt consumption) and REPLACE (eliminate trans fat) – the Initiative aims to improve heart health worldwide. The HEARTS technical package itself gives guidance on more effectively detecting and treating people with hypertension in primary health care.
