Delivering targeted hypertension screening in rural communities
In this case study, we share how we applied our data-driven insights to design and deliver targeted hypertension screening in rural communities.
Over 85% of premature deaths from Non-communicable diseases occur in low- and middle-income countries1. A key challenge is lack of access to healthcare services and low health seeking behaviours in remote populations most at risk. Our baseline data from the profiling of rural communities in the Philippines had identified hypertension as a priority health issue for residents.
