Through our initiatives, we aim to empower individuals to take charge of their health by detecting hypertension early, as elevated blood pressure poses future cardio-vascular risks. Together, we can make a significant difference in improving the health outcomes of millions affected by this condition.”

Glenmark has been at the forefront of raising hypertension awareness and promotingearlydiagnosis among the Indian population. The company had also launched the #TakeChargeAt18 campaign to drive Hypertension awareness and screening of Indian adults above 18 years of age.

Hypertension, a prevalent cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factor, affects approximately 35.5% of adults in India1. Alarmingly, CVD is the leading cause of death in the country, responsible for almost one-fourth of all mortality cases.2India has established a goal of achieving a 25% relative reduction in the prevalence of high blood pressure (BP) among individuals aged 18 years and older by 2025, as part of its efforts to tackle this issue effectively3. Achieving this goal requires a concerted effort to enhance awareness around hypertension, as it serves as a crucial facilitator for encouraging people to proactively manage this condition. Additionally, greater awareness will emphasize the significance of adopting effective management strategies.
