The India hypertension control initiative

The India Hypertension Control Initiative (IHCI) was launched in 2017.

Its aim was to achieve a relative reduction of 25% in the prevalence of increases in ‘blood pressure’.

The project aims to accelerate the implementation of quality ‘hypertension’ treatment for over 150 million people.

The initiative has been launched by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), state governments, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, and the World Health Organization (WHO).

Hypertension:

Higher blood pressure (with the systolic blood pressure 180 or higher, the diastolic blood pressure more than 120, or both) is called a hypertensive urgency if there are no related symptoms. Or it’s called a hypertensive emergency if there are symptoms indicating damage to the brain, heart, or kidneys. If you have a hypertensive urgency, you may need a change in your medicine right away or be evaluated in an emergency room. If you have a hypertensive emergency, you will need to be evaluated in an emergency room; and likely have a stay in the hospital.
