THE No. 1

contributing risk factor for global death is raised blood pressure  – causing strokes, heart attacks and other cardiovascular complications

10 MILLION

lives are lost each year needlessly due to raised blood pressure

ONLY HALF

of people with high blood pressure, know it

 

These deaths are PREVENTABLE……….And that’s the real tragedy

WE WANT TO CHANGE THIS - AND HAVE MADE A GREAT START

May Measurement Month (MMM) is a global awareness campaign led by the International Society of Hypertension (ISH), which represents the world’s leading scientists, clinicians, health care providers and allied health care workers, all with a common interest in hypertension (high blood pressure) research.

Launched in May 2017, MMM put the spotlight on increasing access to blood pressure screening as potentially the most effective way to reduce hypertension’s adverse toll on health.

 

ISH President (2016-2018) Neil Poulter explains how MMM got started

Volunteers in more than 100 countries screened people in cities, towns, and villages as part the largest public blood pressure screening exercises the world has ever seen. All participants left us knowing their blood pressure and anyone who registered as hypertensive was given advice about what they need to do next.  READ MORE

NEXT STOP MMM18!

Now we’re looking ahead to May 2018 and to making a difference to even more people around the world.  So, whether you want to volunteer to be part of this global campaign, or simply want to know more, please contact us and we’ll make sure you’re kept up to date.
