Objectives and Goals

The objectives of the World Hypertension League are to promote the detection, control and prevention of arterial hypertension in populations.

The World Hypertension League is a federation of leagues, societies, and other national bodies devoted to this goal. Individual membership is not possible. The thrust of the WHL's action is in liaison with the member organizations, promoting the exchange of information among them, and offering internationally applicable methods and programs for hypertension control. Bringing together and stimulating organizations committed to the control of hypertension is the goal and raison d'etre of the WHL.

The WHL is a division of the International Society of Hypertension (ISH), and is in official relations with the World Health Organization (WHO).

WHL Principle

Advancement of hypertension prevention and control through joint efforts of all national leagues and societies.
