World Hypertension Day Observed May 17th

Join us on Friday, 17 May 2024, as PAHO/WHO collaborates with the Ministry of Health, St Kitts and Nevis to host a live cooking demo in recognition of World Hypertension Day.

World Hypertension Day is observed every May 17th to raise awareness and promote hypertension prevention, detection, and control. High blood pressure is the main risk factor for developing cardiovascular disease. More than one billion people around the world live with hypertension (high blood pressure), which is a major cause of cardiovascular disease and premature death worldwide.
