Hypertension accounts for 9.4 million deaths worldwide every year with the World Health Organisation (WHO) calling it a global public health issue (WHO, 2013)

This two-day event brings together new research from across the world, as academic researchers present new studies on responses to messaging around health issues, from healthy eating and exercise to blood pressure. They will also discuss research on other health related matters like taxation on sugary drinks and how best to develop healthy habits.
