AGE AND HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

High Blood Pressure cases have been reported in both old and young though the latter group is not supposed to have hypertension. At least not as a consequence of aging, which is the most common cause of hypertension.  

Hence we do not relent in the quest of realizing our vision of being present in every community in Nigeria to impact positively on their physical, mental and social well-being and thereby increase
life expectancy of each community and that of the entire country above the average African value.
