Abstract

Hypertension is one of the most important modifiable risk factor for life-threatening diseases. In China, the percentages of those with hypertension that are aware, treated and controlled are unacceptably low. However, multiple factors contribute to this status. China’s experience demonstrates that health development does not automatically follow economic growth.

Key words: Hypertension, China, awareness, treatment, control.
