MoHAP Launches a National Campaign for Early Detection of Hypertension

The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) recently launched the National Campaign for Early Detection of Hypertension, with this nationwide campaign aimed to test 50,000 adults across various locations in May and June. 

The primary objective of this campaign is to amp up health awareness about the significance of checking blood pressure, leading a healthy lifestyle, and understanding the factors that trigger hypertension and its complications.

This campaign offers complimentary blood pressure screening facilities. During the screening, nurses and trained volunteers will collect information like basic demographics, clinical information, and blood pressure measurements. 

The long-term vision of this campaign is to reduce the blood pressure-associated disease rate by 30% by 2030. To achieve this, it is certainly important to focus on prevention - MoHAP is working on making it possible by creating effective initiatives, plans, and programmes.
