About Us

About society

We were established as the first association concerned with high blood pressure in the Kingdom in 2004 by the efforts of volunteers from various branches of health workers under the supervision of the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties and an elected board of directors. We are keen to strengthen relations with everyone interested in our mission, in the establishment of workshops, seminars and courses/lectures, Research and Public awareness and promotion of a healthy lifestyle.


The society consists of a number of volunteers from various health specialties, who are distributed over a number of universities, private clinics, the Ministry of Health, Media, and referral hospitals.

The society has established centers in Riyadh, Al-Sharqiyah, Jeddah, and Al-Madina.
