This congress is the first of its kind in the field of Hypertension conducted in India and that too in the city of Chennai.

Though India had witnessed many conferences in other specialities, this World Hypertension Congress will pave the best opportunity for Health care providers to learn more about Prevention and Control of Hypertension from renowned International Speakers. Since the prevalence of Hypertension is on the rise in our Country with increase in morbidity and mortality, it is most important to participate and acquire knowledge to get implemented in clinical practice from the best of the best.
