One out of every four people in the country suffers from hypertension
Today is World Hypertension Day.
Hypertension is known around the world as a silent killer.
According to the Bangladesh Demographic Health Survey 2016-17, 21% of the total population of the country or about one in four suffers from hypertension.

According to the World Health Organization, about 1.5 billion people worldwide suffer from hypertension.
And this problem causes about 6 million people to die every year from various complex diseases including stroke and heart disease.

Hypertension is a non-communicable disease.

It is a driving force behind the global epidemic and one of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide.
Less than half of adults worldwide are aware of their hypertension.
The World Hypertension League celebrates World Hypertension Day on May 16 every year to raise awareness of the silent killer.
This year’s theme of the day is ‘Measure your blood pressure accurately, keep it under control, and gain longevity.’
