webinar publication eng Join us on May 16 2018, on the webinar "Know your numbers", organized by PAHO to present the new publication "Monitoring and evaluation Framework for Hypertension Control Programs" and mark World Hypertension Day. Dr. Norm Campbell, Inmediate Past President of the World Hypertension League, will be one of the speakers, along with Dr. Pedro Ordúñez, PAHO´s Regional advisor on Cardiovascular Disease.

"Know your numbers" is the theme of this year's World Hypertension Day. PAHO wants to take this call to action to higher level for health professionals working on hypertension control programs, with an invitation to know better the hypertension related numbers of their panel of patients, of their population, and the hypertension control indicators.

"Monitoring and Evaluation Framework for Hypertension Control Programs" is the tool available to know those numbers. It provides a foundation that allows countries, based on their own resources and priorities, to select indicators for their monitoring and evaluation efforts and strongly recommends the use of the five core indicators of the Global HEARTS cardiovascular disease management technical package and one additional PAHO-WHL core indicator. The framework is designed to be used at different intervention levels: national, regional, and even at the community or clinic/facility-level.
