Following the success of the inaugural May Measurement Month (MMM) in 2017, programmes are already in place to repeat the mass synchronized global blood pressure (BP) screening campaign this May 2018. MMM is an initiative led by the International Society of Hypertension (ISH) and endorsed by the World Hypertension League (WHL) – building on World Hypertension Day, to raise awareness of the issues surrounding raised BP during the month of May.
