LINKS Advocacy Campaign: #BeatThePressure
18 Oct 2021
The World Health Organization (WHO) released new Guideline for the Pharmacological Treatment of Hypertension in Adults on August 25, 2021. These new guidelines – the first update in 20 years – outline key recommendations for governments, health system managers, and health care workers to effectively treat hypertension and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and preventable death.
Resolve to Save Lives has partnered with the World Heart Federation, the World Hypertension League, and the NCD Alliance to promote the recently released WHO hypertension treatment guidelines and advocate for the rapid adoption of these guidelines in low- and middle-income countries around the world.
Check out our #BeatThePressure campaign page and our Social Media Toolkit for new resources on hypertension management and tips on how you can encourage your government to adopt the new guidelines into your country's national treatment plan.
