To mark the World Hypertension Day 2021, NHF plans to reach out to the Elderly citizens; this group is the most vulnerable in the society.
For these groups any inaccurate blood pressure reading mostly would have dire fatal consequences. Especially at the times we are, considering the unfavorable conditions economically socially, financially and lack of provisions in policies and laws to protect their health and welfare.

Nigerian Heart Foundation seek to work with the Senior Citizens Association of Nigeria to bring the message to its members across Lagos State.

This year’s World Hypertension Day theme focuses on combating low awareness of hypertension worldwide, especially in low to middle income areas and accurate blood pressure measurement methods.
