From the President of EHS:
The main objectives of this document are to provide the practitioners in Egypt with an up-to-date information regarding the management of hypertension in a poor resources’ setting and help answering practical questions seen in daily practice. The development of guidelines took into consideration the low socioeconomic status of the majority of the Egyptian patients, the defective health care system in our country- majority of public pay out of their own pocket to cover the health costs, in addition to the limited medical education in the field. The target physician population for these guidelines is the general practitioners, family doctors, internists and those who are taking care of hypertensive patients.
