Hypertension in the Arab world: a systematic assessment of the evidence on awareness, treatment and control

​​​Hypertension is a leading risk factor for mortality and morbidity globally and in the Arab world. Researchers from the Center for Research on Population and Health (CRPH) at the Faculty of Health Sciences in the American University of Beirut published a recent study aiming to summarize the evidence on awareness, treatment, and control of hypertension, to assess the extent of gaps in the hypertension continuum of care. The study also assesses the influence of gender and other social determinants at each level of the cascade of care.
