The Inter-American Society of Hypertension (IASH) is a non-profit organization devoted to the understanding, prevention, and control of hypertension and vascular diseases. Its members include outstanding scientists and physicians from 20 different countries in the Americas Europe, Australia and Asia. Anyone interested in the field of hypertension and cardiovascular diseases is welcome to join the society.
To encourage research and exchange of ideas in hypertension and vascular diseases (basic, clinical and epidemiological) among physicians and scientists of the Americas. To achieve this goal, the IASH organizes biennial meetings that serve as a forum for “interchange of scientific and clinical information and recent research findings”.
To stimulate young scientists and physicians into research of hypertension, cardiovascular and clinical practice. To achieve this objective, the Society continues to seek funds for young researchers and clinicians to attend scientific meetings and funds for fellowships for promising young scientists, especially those from Latin America.
To promote the detection, control and prevention of hypertension and other cardiovascular risk factors among the peoples of the Americas. To achieve this objective, the IASH has become a member of the World Hypertension League (WHL) whose main goal is to encourage the control of hypertension throughout the world. This aim is achieved through joint efforts with national hypertension organizations by promoting exchange of information among them, and offering international applicable methods and programs for hypertension control.
To educate physicians, health workers, and the general public on the various aspects of etiology, pathogenesis, prevention, early detection and treatment of hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. To achieve this objective, the Society has gathered faculty and members with expertise in the various aspects of hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. They are able to provide continuing medical education as needed in various countries of the Americas.

Control of Hypertension Among Adults — National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, United States, 2005–2008
Hypertension control has the potential to prevent a substantial number of deaths because although hypertension is common (affecting approximately 30% of the U.S. adult population), therapeutic interventions are effective, and control rates are below achievable levels (13). If implementation of health-care reform increases the number of people with regular access to primary care and access to affordable medications, it could have a substantial impact on control of hypertension in the U.S. population.
