Tibet Charity along with Tibetan settlement office Dharamsala observed World Heart Day by organising a camp at the main temple to check the blood pressure measurement. 454 people came for the checkup. However, very few of them have known cases of hypertension and therefore are under treatment. Those, who are newly diagnosed as having high blood pressure, were advised to monitor and consult a doctor for further checkup and necessary treatment, if required.
With this camp, we hoped not only to identify people with unknown case of hypertension but also to create awareness among the public to maintain one’s blood pressure under control. The importance to keep one’s BP under control was explained.
We thank the staff of Tibetan Settlement Office for extending their support.
