Overview

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.
