Hypertension, also known as excessive or elevated blood pressure, is a condition in which the blood vessels have increased pressure persistently. Blood is transported from the heart through the arteries to other areas of the body. This pumps blood into the arteries each time the heart beats. Blood pressure is created by the force of blood flowing through blood vessel walls (arteries) as the heart pumps it. The higher the pressure the more difficult the heart has to pump.

Hypertension is a severe medical disorder that may raise the risk of heart , brain, kidney, and other disorders. It is a significant cause of worldwide premature death, with the disease being more than 1 in 4 men and 1 in 5 women – over a billion people. In low- and middle-income nations, where two-thirds of cases are reported, the burden of hypertension is felt especially due largely to elevated risk factors in those populations in recent decades.
