Specialist Warns of Premature Death Risk from Hypertension in People Over 30

Published on

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a growing health concern around the world, and South Sudan is no exception. A recent study conducted by healthcare specialists has found that people in South Sudan who are above 30 years of age and suffering from hypertension are at a higher risk of premature death. This finding is particularly concerning in a country where access to healthcare is limited and the prevalence of hypertension is high.

The study, which was published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, analyzed data from over 1.5 million participants from around the world, including South Sudan. It found that people with hypertension who are over 30 years old in South Sudan are more likely to die prematurely from heart disease, stroke, and kidney failure than those who are younger.

The findings of this study are particularly alarming given the limited healthcare resources in South Sudan. The country has been plagued by conflict and instability for many years, and this has had a significant impact on its healthcare system. Access to healthcare is limited, and many people do not have access to the medications and treatments needed to manage conditions such as hypertension.

The study’s lead author, Dr. Xiufang Duan, emphasized the importance of early detection and management of hypertension, especially in countries like South Sudan where resources are limited. “It is essential that people in South Sudan are aware of the risks associated with hypertension and take steps to manage their blood pressure effectively,” she said.

Efforts are being made to increase awareness and education about hypertension in South Sudan. The South Sudanese Ministry of Health has developed a national strategy for the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases, which includes hypertension. The strategy aims to improve access to healthcare, increase awareness about the risks associated with hypertension, and promote lifestyle changes to reduce the risk of hypertension.

In addition, organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) are working to support the South Sudanese government in improving access to healthcare and increasing awareness about hypertension. The WHO is providing technical support and training to healthcare workers, as well as working with the government to improve access to medications and treatments for hypertension.

The study’s findings highlight the urgent need to address the growing prevalence of hypertension in South Sudan and to improve access to healthcare and medications to manage the condition. Efforts to increase awareness and education about hypertension, as well as promote lifestyle changes, can help reduce the risk of premature death and improve overall health outcomes for the people of South Sudan.
