World Health Day is April 7, Focus on High Blood Pressure


World Health Day 2013: Control Your Blood Pressure

On April 7, 2013, individuals and organizations throughout the world will celebrate World Health Day. The theme for this year is high blood pressure.
 
High blood pressure affects one in three adults worldwide; in Colorado, 1.2 million people have high blood pressure, which is a major contributor to heart disease and stroke. Click here to learn more about high blood pressure or to access World Health Day campaigns kits or posters.

High blood pressure management is a key strategy of the Million Hearts Initiative, an effort to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes over five years. Colorado participates in this initiative and you can too. Be one in a million - make your commitment and pledge today.
