The World Day of struggle with the “silent killer” – hypertension is marked on Tuesday in all countries. Almost one third of population suffers from hypertension in Russia.

The World Day is established by the World League of struggle with hypertension with the assistance of the World Health Organization and held since 2005. Its main goal is attraction of population’s attention to prevention of the diseases, caused by high arterial pressurem, and spreading of the information about prophylactics and treatment of such diseases.
