Hypertension - A Silent Killer

Hypertension has been long recognized as one of the major risk factors for cardiovascular disease and premature deaths worldwide. It is estimated to cause 9.4 million deaths and 7.0% of Disability Adjusted Life Years ( DALYs) . In India, it exerts substantial public health burden on cardiovascular health status and health care system. It is estimated to account for 10.8% of all the deaths and 4.6% of DALYs in the country . The adult hypertension prevalence has shown a drastic increase in the past three decades in urban as well as rural areas. It is estimated that 16% of Ischemic Heart Disease (IHD), 21% of Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD), 24% of Acute Myocardial Infarction (MI) and 29% of strokes are attributed to hypertension . This stresses the need for its effective management and control, and it highlights the huge impact it can have on the burden of cardiovascular diseases.

The increasing burden of hypertension necessitates key strategies and policies for its prevention. There are several issues that arise when it comes to management of hypertension, such as lack of availability of doctors (very low doctor to population ratio), concentration of specialists in urban areas and lack of training in management of hypertension at graduate level (MBBS). In the backdrop of these issues, Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI), Centre for Chronic Disease Control (CCDC), International Society of Hypertension (ISH) and British and Irish Hypertension Society (BIHS) have started this capacity building initiative in hypertension management for primary care physicians in India.
