According to MOHW statistics for 2016, heart disease, cerebrovascular disease and hypertensive disease—all related to hypertension—were ranked as the second, fourth and eighth leading causes of death in Taiwan, respectively. One in every 4.5 deaths is caused by hypertensive diseases. Since hypertension has no obvious symptoms, it is known as the silent killer. On May 17, 2017, World Hypertension Day, themed Know Your Numbers, called on governments across the world to stress the importance of blood pressure measurement. To raise awareness of the issue and encourage people to check their blood pressure, the MOHW’s Health Promotion Administration organized a monthlong campaign in cooperation with the Taiwan Hypertension Society, Taiwan Pharmacist Association and Taiwan Millennium Health Foundation. Over 1,500 blood pressure measurement spots were set up nationwide in locations like convenience stores, cosmetics retail outlets and pharmacies. An estimated 60,000 people checked their blood pressure and consulted with pharmacists through the campaign.
