The Hypertension Cardiovascular Outcome Prevention and Evidence in Asia (HOPE Asia) Network was formed in 2016 and is now a member of the World Hypertension League. The main goal of the HOPE Asia Network is to improve the management of hypertension and organ protection toward achieving “zero” cardiovascular events in Asia.

May Measurement Month
May Measurement Month (MMM) is an initiative led by the International Society of Hypertension (ISH) and endorsed by the World Hypertension League (WHL). It grew out of World Hypertension Day (17thMay), which was launched by the WHL in 2005 to raise awareness of the issues surrounding raised blood pressure.
May Measurement Month (MMM) has expanded this into a global synchronised screening campaign, which took place for the first time during May 2017. Over 100 countries took part in the inaugural year, with limited resources and relying on the goodwill of MMM’s many volunteers. Over 1.2 million people had their BP measured in 2017, and we reached a further 1.5m people in 2018, and 1.5m in 2019, making this the world’s largest ever public blood pressure screening programme.
