Action on Racial Disparity in Hypertension Control

Arch Intern Med. 2006;166(7):812. doi:10.1001/archinte.166.7.812

Hertz et al1 call for action to decrease racial disparity in blood pressure (BP) control among treated hypertensive patients. The staff of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) had noted this disparity when the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 1999-2000 data were released and they developed a research initiative to improve hypertension control among treated African Americans.2
