National High Blood Pressure Education
The National High Blood Pressure Education Program
(NHBPEP), established in 1972, is a cooperative effort among professional and
voluntary health agencies, State health departments, and many community groups.
The NHBPEP is administered and coordinated by the National Heart, Lung, and
Blood Institute (NHLBI). The goal of the NHBPEP is to reduce death and
disability related to high blood pressure through programs of professional,
patient, and public education.
