Abstract

ABSTRACT
Introduction: Hypertension is a most common disease also a significant manageable issue of public health worldwide.
It is a big threat and a main predictor of cardiovascular diseases. Currently it is estimated that about one billion
human populations all over the world are hypertensive. It is expected that the number of such patients will e increase
upto 1.56 billion by 2025. Although in the presence of effective antihypertensive drugs, majority of the patients are
still hypertensive. In statistical studies it is shown that control rates vary from country to country and in different races.
However, the overall control rates are not satisfactory and this is because of mainly due to ignorance or no knowledge
of hypertension, inability of follow-ups, financial crises and all above these are main causes of failure to treatment
