When blood pressure marsh fire..you get for chook brakes!
Low income communities suffer more from the socio-economic effects of poor health services or complete lack of access to medical fascilities. The more reason why we focus on prevention. So we use a language which cuts across social and educational barriers and hope we can make a difference.
This video addresses high blood pressure in PIDGIN English. Not addressing hypertension or high blood pressure in a timely fashion will have significant economic and social impact especially in poor communities. Nearly 80% of deaths due to cardiovascular disease occur in low- and middle-income countries. They are the countries that can least afford the social and economic consequences that is why we place value on AWARENESS in communities which need it most and in a language they can understand.
