To launch the National Hypertension Control Roundtable, CDC's Division of Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention worked in partnership with PHI's Center for Collaborative Planning (CCP) to host a two-day meeting, designed to initiate a national dialogue on understanding and addressing the challenges surrounding hypertension control.

100+ leaders from public & private sectors participated in the discussions

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly half of all adults in the United States have hypertension—and only about 1 in 4 (24%) of those people have their condition under control.

In 2020 the CDC formed the National Hypertension Control Roundtable (NHCR), a multi-sectoral group of public, private, and nonprofit organizations committed to improving national hypertension control rates from about 50% to at least 80% by 2025.

To help launch this new initiative, CDC’s Division of Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention worked in partnership with PHI’s Center for Collaborative Planning to host a two-day meeting that brought together over 100 public and private sector leaders from health systems, insurers, employers, academia, and national advocacy organizations. Participants explored promising practices and developed collective impact agendas and actions for national implementation. The meeting created space for different sectors of the community to explore shared values, interests, and solutions around hypertension control.

As a result of this meeting, 20+ national organizations and partners signed on as founding members to the NHCR.
