NEW YORK, USA, 11 May, 2022 -/African Media Agency(AMA)/- Although COVID-19 is the most visible pandemic of our lifetime, it’s neither the deadliest nor the most preventable. High blood pressure, known as hypertension, is the world’s leading cause of death, killing more than 10 million people every year, including many in the prime of their lives. Hypertension can be easily controlled with medication, but access and costs are highly unequal, forcing many in low-and-middle-income countries to choose between basic necessities and lifesaving medication. Fewer than one in 10 people with hypertension are treated effectively.
To launch its latest report, “Under Pressure: Strategies to Improve Access to Medicines to Improve High Blood Pressure in Low- and Middle-Income Countries,” Resolve to Save Lives will host a virtual event to discuss the importance of equitable pricing and access to hypertension medication. Ahead of the Global Health Summit and World Health Assembly, panelists will discuss how government, manufacturers, and civil society can work together to reduce antihypertension medication costs and halt this epidemic.
