Hypertension, commonly known as high blood pressure, affects not only older individuals but also children and young adults. Recent studies have shown an alarming increase in the number of young individuals diagnosed with hypertension, highlighting the importance of early detection and preventive measures.

Caloocan City Mayor Along Malapitan expressed his gratitude to the Caloocan City Medical Center for its unwavering dedication to the health and well-being of the community. The center's proactive approach in organizing the discussion on hypertension demonstrates its commitment to addressing prevalent health issues and promoting overall wellness among Caloocan City residents.


During the panel discussion, medical professionals and experts specializing in hypertension will provide valuable insights into the causes, symptoms, and management strategies for this condition. Participants can expect to gain a better understanding of the importance of regular blood pressure monitoring, lifestyle modifications, and appropriate medical interventions to prevent and manage hypertension effectively.

The event serves as a platform to educate the community about the risks associated with hypertension and empower individuals with knowledge that can lead to early detection and timely interventions. By raising awareness and promoting preventive measures, the Caloocan City Medical Center aims to reduce the incidence and impact of hypertension among its residents, ultimately contributing to improved public health outcomes.

World Family Doctor Day serves as a reminder of the vital role played by family doctors and healthcare professionals in providing comprehensive and holistic care to individuals and families. Through events like the hypertension panel discussion, the Caloocan City Medical Center recognizes the significance of primary healthcare and emphasizes the importance of preventive measures in ensuring the well-being of the community.

Residents of Caloocan City are encouraged to take part in this educational event and utilize the knowledge gained to make informed decisions regarding their health. By engaging in open discussions and seeking expert guidance, individuals can actively contribute to their own well-being and that of their families.


Caloocan City is taking significant steps towards creating a healthier and more informed society. By addressing prevalent health issues and fostering a culture of proactive healthcare, the city aims to improve the overall quality of life for its residents.
