The package has been designed primarily for the management of cardiovascular (CVD) risk in individuals detected to have hypertension through opportunistic screening. The package is meant to be implemented in a range of health-care facilities in low- and medium-resource settings, in both developed and developing countries, and for this reason it has been designed for three scenarios that reflect the commonly encountered resource availability strata in such settings.
