Community action for health in Kyrgyzstan - hypertension detection (2016)




Community Action for Health (CAH) in Kyrgyzstan is a health promotion programme built on direct citizen participation. Village health committees (VHCs), made up of volunteers, work with primary health care services to identify health-related priorities and implement health actions.

One of the most ambitious health actions has focused on hypertension, contributing to improvements in early detection and subsequent monitoring of people with high blood pressure.
