Abstract

Raised blood pressure is the biggest single contributing risk factor worldwide to death and the burden of disease. However, international data suggest that fewer than half of those with hypertension are aware of their condition. In May 2017, the International Society of Hypertension and the World Hypertension League are leading a global initiative – May Measurement Month (MMM) – to raise awareness of the importance of screening. MMM will be a cross-sectional survey of up to 25 million men and women aged 18+ who have not had their BP measured since 30 April 2016.
