Abstract

Hypertension is becoming an increasingly common health problem globally. In 2002, WHO estimated that there are a staggering 1 billion individuals with hypertension and 7.1 million deaths yearly contributed to hypertension. Currently, it is estimated that the number of hypertensive patients in Malaysia is 4.8 million, according to the Ministry of Health. It is even more disquieting that approximately two-thirds of individuals with hypertension in Malaysia were unaware that they were hypertensive.
