Why is May Measurement so important? Because the International Society of Hypertension (ISH) has identified that increased awareness will help fight the issue against raised Blood Pressure (BP). The main targets for May Measurement (and so deliveries for diamond):
- Screen 25 million people, who have not had their BPs measured since April 30, 2016, during the month of May 2017.
- To reach this target, each day throughout May the MMM team will need to screen an average of 100 people in 100 sites in each of the 100 countries (100 x 100 x 100 x 25 = 25 million!).
- The number of sites will vary from country to country based on the population size. But that’s just 1% of the population of each country getting screened to reach the target.
