Hypertension Day 2006 (WHD 2006) - has come and gone and we are pleased to announce
that we received a very good response from hypertension organizations worldwide.
At this time we would like to encourage you to submit your group’s report
describing the activities and programs that you initiated to “Treat to Goal,”
along with the methods you plan to incorporate to maintain compliance with the treatment."

World Hypertension Day (WHD), scheduled for Saturday, May 13, 2006, is swiftly approaching.
We trust that you and your hypertension league are making plans to provide information
on the prevention, detection and treatment of hypertension in your country. Please
keep a record of your activities and take photos of interesting events. We will
post them in the WHL Newsletter and on our WHL website (www.worldhypertensionleague.org).
You may email all photos to the WHL Secretariat Office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Furthermore, we request that you submit a report describing your activities and,
in particular, your league’s programs to "Treat to Goal," and also
the methods you will use to maintain compliance with treatment. The WHL Executive
Board will review and select the top three reports for a (modest) monetary
award and a special certificate. All leagues submitting a report
will receive a certificate commemorating their participation in WHD 2006.
Enclosed is some material that you may wish to use for WHD. It consists of a poster
and also a brochure that you may reproduce and distribute as you wish.
Last year, WHD was very successful, and we hope that this year will be even more
successful. Thank you for participating in this very important event.
Very best wishes.
Claude Lenfant, M.D.
