Today is the World Hypertension Day
Today is the World Hypertension Day. It was first inaugurated in May 2005 and has become an annual event ever since. Cardiovascular diseases remain the main cause of death in the world, and in Bulgaria they occupy the first place as a cause of death and disability.
Therefore, for the 13th consecutive year in Sofia and in 10 other cities in the country will be held a national health campaign to help hypertensive patients. At the established health centres, everyone can get useful information about their health condition.
This is an initiative of the World Hypertension League and aims at awareness of hypertension, prevention and control of cardiovascular diseases in Bulgaria.
