CAUSE 2013: Blood Pressure Exam

The theme of this year’s Abonnema Convention was “Tackle the silent killer – High blood pressure, through education, and resource in Abonnema community”

Stroke and high blood pressure are major causes of death and disability in our community. However, awareness of hypertension and its prevention, treatment, and control remain very low. Abonnema Foundation believes that emphasis on improved surveillance, prevention, and control of high blood pressure and stroke in the community is needed. Thusly, the Foundation aspires to make a difference.
