The Middle-East is a diverse region with many countries of differing socio-economic status. While some countries are facing war and famine, others have a booming economy. This is reflected in the health care in these countries. Hypertension is a problem of all these countries. In this spotlight, we wish to draw attention to the barriers faced by the different countries in the region in their fight to bring blood pressure under control.
