Name Prevalence Awareness Treatment Control of Hypertension MidEast

Objective: We report the prevalence, awareness, treatment, and control of hypertension across four Middle Eastern countries (Iran, Occupied Palestinian Territory, Saudi Arabia, and United Arab Emirates), using a standardized and uniform method. 

Methods: The Prospective Urban Rural Epidemiology study enrolled participants from 52 urban and 35 rural communities from four countries in the Middle East. We report results using definitions of hypertension, prevalence, awareness, treatment, and control, and the standards for uniform reporting of hypertension in adults as recently recommended by the World Hypertension League expert committee.
