New lives saved calculator models the impact of cardiovascular health interventions

On World Hypertension Day, we launched a new tool with the University of Washington to help policymakers, advocates and health experts visualize how millions more lives can be saved when countries adopt evidence-based hypertension prevention and treatment policies. The new tool models the number of lives that could be saved by the year 2040 when hypertension control and lower salt consumption goals are reached.
