Hypertension and dyslipidaemia are key risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD), and the global prevalence of hypertension is expected to rise, particularly in emerging nations. In recent years, rapid urbanization, increased life expectancy, unhealthy diet, and lifestyle changes have led to an increased rate of CVD in Southeast Asia, including India.[1] Epidemiological studies have established a strong association between hypertension and coronary artery disease.[2] According to the World Health Organization, 1.13 billion people suffer with hypertension globally, with the majority (two-thirds) living in low- and middle- income nations. In 2015, one in every four men and one in every five women had hypertension. Only about 1 in every 5 patients with hypertension has their condition under control.
