World Hypertension Day (WHD) 2021

May 17th 2021

The day is organised by the World Hypertension League (WHL) which is an umbrella organisation composed of 85 hypertension societies and leagues from all over the world.

We would like to encourage as many people as possible to get involved in May Measurement Month. In this initiative which started in 2017, volunteer manned screening sites will be setting up in a range of venues around the world to check the blood pressure of as many people as possible.

The 2021 theme is Know Your Numbers
