Understanding Hypertension: The Silent Killer

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a widespread and potentially life-threatening condition that affects millions of people worldwide. Due to its lack of noticeable symptoms in its early stages, hypertension can lead to severe health complications if left untreated.  Hypertension occurs when the force of blood against the walls of the arteries is consistently too high. Blood pressure is measured using two numbers: systolic pressure (the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats) and diastolic pressure (the pressure in the arteries when the heart is at rest between beats).

Burning the Midnight Oil? You might be burning yourself out

The Hustle is Real, but so is burnout You conquer your to-do list, emails vanish at your touch, deadlines tremble before you. You're truly a productive superhero!

World Health Day 2024: My Health My right

The theme selected for this year aims to advocate for universal access to essential health services, education, and information, alongside ensuring access to safe drinking water, clean air, adequate nutrition, quality housing, fair working conditions, and a healthy environment, while also promoting freedom from discrimination for all individuals worldwide. Health is defined as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Health Education - You have the right to quality information about factors affecting your health, regardless of your location.
