Primary Prevention of Hypertension: Clinical and Public Health Advisory from the National High Blood Pressure Education Program

This 14 page booklet for health professionals reflects the latest scientific evidence on preventing high blood pressure and updates the 1993 "National High Blood Pressure Education Program Working Group Report on Primary Prevention of Hypertension". The new advisory emphasizes two complementary strategies to keep blood pressure from rising: a population-based strategy and an intensive strategy for high-risk individuals. Evaluations of traditional and non-traditional treatment programs are presented.
