Hypertension: What are the self-care and Health seeking behaviours in women over time?
One in three adults worldwide has raised blood pressure – a condition that causes around half of all deaths from stroke and heart disease. High blood pressure is a major risk factor for Coronary heart disease (CHD) which is one of the leading causes of mortality in women internationally. This project aims to report the prevalence and incidence of hypertension over time (surveys 1-6) and describe the self-care and health seeking behaviours in women diagnosed with hypertension over time (surveys 3-6).
