• High blood pressure is the most prevalent and modifiable global risk factor for stroke.
• As populations in developing countries increase in size and age, hypertension will increase the burden.
• In addition to pharmaceutical management of elevated blood pressure, lifestyle modifications including salt reduction, physical activity and weight management can be effective in lowering blood pressure.
• A key to the global prevention and control of hypertension and hypertension-related outcomes including stroke, is blood pressure measurement. The theme of World Hypertension Day is ‘Know Your Numbers’, and all persons regardless of age or gender should be aware of their blood pressure.
