World Hypertension Day is celebrated annually on May 17th. The main aim of the day is to educate the public and increase awareness of hypertension, which is also commonly known as high blood pressure.
Hypertension is a major cause of a range of health problems such as strokes, heart attacks and kidney disease, and can also contribute to dementia. Many people who suffer from hypertension are not aware that they have it as there can be no symptoms, often people only find out after suffering a heart attack or stroke.
