May Measurement Month
The British & Irish Hypertension Society is supporting the ISH initiative to measure over 25 million blood pressures around the world during the month of May.
May Measurement Month (MMM), the global campaign run by the ISH to raise awareness of the need for people to get their blood pressure checked, will be back in May 2021. After three successful years, MMM was naturally forced to pause in 2020, but has returned for 2021 with increased energy, asking people to ‘roll their sleeves up’ and take action. May Measurement Month has been extended this year to run between 1 May – 30 Nov and builds on the WHL’s established World Hypertension Day (held on 17 May each year) with volunteer health professionals at local screening sites, in more than 90 countries.
